Ecofront is a solely owned Australian company and our core product is produced in Australia, but it did not start here. The Ecofront Energy Monitor was first conceived of, manufactured and sold in Japan. Our Japan office (Ecofront Japan) developed the initial version of the product and our very first client was a Japanese company called FNJ, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tokyo Electric Power Company.

FNJ is an ISP and they wanted to marry their internet services with their parent company’s power utility service. What better way to do that than to provide Internet accessible real-time energy monitoring services using our Ecofront Energy Monitor

Is your fridge energy hungry?

Firstly I would like to set the scene. Recently I was in a client’s new home and he was showing off his new fridge with all the bells and whistles. I noticed the energy rating sticker claiming it used only 1100KW of power for the year to which I exclaimed “oh my god mine uses over 6KW per day”. The simple response I received was “you should buy a new one”.

So here I am. I have done the numbers for which I would like to share with all.

The INTERGOVERMENTAL PANEL ON CLIMATE CHANGE (IPCC) Report has now been released, even though the final AR5 Report will not be finalised until October 2014, but confirms that carbon dioxide emissions will rise faster than previously predicted and there is no definite certainty on the real effect on climate or actual effect on business and the public at large.

Governments will have to address this problem, be ready to tackle any future long term changes in climate either adverse or benign. Unfortunately in the past bodies such as the CLIMATE COMMISSION gave to many alarmist views, no matter how well meaning they were, which has been an over cost to industry and statutory bodies.
