Energy efficiency in City Buildings project<span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​About</h2></span><p> The project involved the roll-out of over 450 smart meters as well as a number of retrofit projects. These include energy efficient lighting, solar water heaters, HVAC (heating, ventilating and air-conditioning), solar PV, and educating building managers and occupants about the project. </p><p>At present, the City has retrofitted 18 of its buildings with energy efficient technology and a further 11 have been retrofitted with LED lighting and motion sensors. The LED lighting retrofit programme at the Civic Centre will save the City 5 225MWh annually.</p> <span> <div class="notification with-heading dark-copy light-blue bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info fastfact">​​</i></div><div class="desc"><h4>Fast fact​</h4><p> <b></b>The City is saving about R12 million annually through this project, with 6 865 MWh of electricity and 6 796 tonnes of carbon dioxide also saved.</p></div></div></span> <p> Photovoltaic panels have been installed at: </p><ul><li>Manenberg housing contact centre (20 kWh);</li><li>Gallows Hill Traffic Department (10 kWp);</li><li>Electricity Services Department head office (100 kWp);</li><li>Wallacedene taxi rank (kWp);</li><li>Royal Ascot (20 kWp);</li><li>Khayelitsha environmental health centre (17 kWp);</li><li>Omniforum (60 kWp); and</li><li>Royal Ascot (20kWp).</li></ul><p>Annual production of these systems so far is estimated at 296 400 kwh/annum.</p> <span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​Contact us</h2></span><p>If you have any queries or need more information about the project, please contact our main representative: </p><h4>Sumaya Mahomed, Energy and Climate Change Unit</h4><p> <em>Telephone: </em><br><em> <a>021 487 2084</a></em></p><p> <em>Fax: </em><br><em><a>021 487 2578</a></em></p><p> <em>Email: </em><br><a href=""><em></em></a></p>GP0|#9bcad188-5945-4718-9d91-6b4ef5e4b0d9;L0|#09bcad188-5945-4718-9d91-6b4ef5e4b0d9|Energy efficiency in City Buildings project;GTSet|#dc1a8a1b-0357-45bc-b768-7d9a89c8ef94;GPP|#9c5fe12f-5958-47f0-8a74-9e491a80d61a;GPP|#01c7dd08-6ba3-4ae5-86c1-37cf07e8323e;GPP|#659228ce-7f43-4fe6-8efe-ddeb2a010e91Learn more about how you can contribute to and get involved in, the Energy Efficiency in City Buildings project.0
