530 Collins Street, Melbourne This commercial office building is managed by the GPT Group. Technology supplier, Energy Smart Water, will conduct the tour and outline how heat pump systems have been installed at the site to efficient supply domestic hot water for use in bathrooms and kitchen facilities for the tenants. ESW will also discuss how space constraints can be overcome for heat pumps to be used in commercial buildings to deliver energy and emissions savings.

Automatic Heating Training Pod, Epping Heat pump solution provider, Automatic Heating, will welcome us into its Training Pod and take us through how heat pumps work in a real-world setting with five different heat pump technologies to view, including CO2 and high-temperature heat pumps, and discuss their potential in the realm of sustainable heating solutions. The presentation will also cover the essentials of heat pump selection and system design and practical tips on operating heat pumps.

3 Ravens Brewery, Thornbury In collaboration with consultant, Regenerate Engineering, 3 Ravens has undertaken a major energy upgrade as part of expansion plans. This tour will show attendees the chiller heat pump and thermal storage systems which are efficiently using waste heat and cooling in other parts of the process to significantly reduce energy cost. The upgrade is expected to allow 3 Ravens to quadruple production without an increase in energy costs.
