The South Australian government is committed to improving the energy efficiency of the buildings it owns and occupies.
Energy efficiency strategy
The South Australian government has had an energy efficiency strategy for government buildings in place since 2002.
In 2013, Cabinet approved a revised Government Buildings Energy Strategy PDF, 461.02 KB, which seeks to improve energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit the energy costs associated with operating government buildings. The strategy describes how the government is improving energy management in government buildings at each stage in a building's life, including:
- designing and constructing new government buildings
- refurbishing existing government buildings
- negotiating new and renewed leases
- managing and maintaining buildings
- procuring equipment.
The Government Buildings Energy Group, with representatives from all government agencies, oversees the implementation of the Government Buildings Energy Strategy.
