All questions in Energy Efficiency & Helping the Enivronment

How specifically does Pooled Energy help the electricity grid?

It helps by: Managing collective swimming pool, energy demand in such a way as to off-load the Grid and the Electricity Generating Fleet during peak events.   Peak demand events […]

How big are the energy savings?

All pools are different and we will estimate your individual savings at the time we make a detailed offer. Typically, the pool represents about 30% of the electricity consumption of […]

Can you summarise how Pooled Energy helps the environment?

Pooled Energy helps in the following ways: By significantly reducing the energy consumption of swimming pools, the Pooled Energy system reduces the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the generation of […]

I really want to do something about energy conservation. What can I do?

If you have a swimming pool, the fastest and largest environment return at the lowest cost is probably a Pooled Energy System.  The costs and returns for various options are […]

Can you quantify the value to the environment?

If Pooled Energy achieves its current sales targets by 2025, it expects: To save enough power across its aggregated pools equivalent to the retirement of coal-fired power station from the […]

What is the Difference between Power and Energy?

  Power is measured in kilowatts (KW) and is the instantaneous demand for electricity.  For example, a small heater will typically consume 2.4 KW.  Your wiring, Grid, batteries and inverters […]

Should we be trying to get off the electricity grid?

The simple answer is, love it or not, the Grid is both indispensable and inevitable for the foreseeable future. The Electricity Grid, despite its obvious pollution problems, is the largest […]

What is the Difference between Energy Management and Tariff Minimisation?

Energy Management is the actual management of real, energy use. It has to be generated, distributed, stored if possible, stabilised to remove as many peaks and troughs in demand as possible, […]

How much Carbon should I save a year?

Every pool varies, but savings are up about 20 tonnes of CO2 over the 5 years of the contract.
