Ventia to provide LED lighting program for Defence Australia

Defence Australia is the largest Commonwealth landholder and one of the largest overall landholders in Australia, comprising 700 owned and leased properties over approximately 2.5 million hectares of land, covering all states and territories in Australia. This means improvements to energy consumption on estates may make a significant difference to energy bills and emissions.

Ventia proposed a program to assess the lifecycle cost of lighting and replace the inefficient lighting at Defence bases with LED lighting.

Reducing emissions and addressing energy transition

Lena Parker, General Manager Energy Solutions, said working with Defence Australia to enhance energy security and reduce emissions opens up opportunities to address the energy transition risk.

“Something relatively simple like upgrading to more efficient lighting can have a massive impact on energy bills, energy consumption as well as the environment,” Parker said.

Cross-country lighting upgrade rollout

87,000 new LED light fittings, over 80 shipping containers, have been procured for the lighting upgrade, and the installation phase is rolling out across 37 bases in Australia. In addition to the cost and energy savings, there is a reduction in maintenance costs as well as an improvement in light quality and the ability for ‘smart control’ of lighting.

Best practice asset management

As the asset manager for Defence bases across Western Australia, Northern Territory, Victoria and South Australia, Ventia is responsible for determining and implementing best practice asset management. This includes electrical infrastructure and covers planned, reactive and conditional maintenance, as well as end-of-life retirement of asset replacement and enhanced capability.

The program is expected to significantly reduce energy bills and reactive maintenance costs when completed.
