Wine Industry Energy Management Solutions

Putting Australian wine makers and grape growers in control of their energy

Quality wine requires high quantities of energy

From harvesting to bottling, winemaking is an energy intensive process, leading many wine businesses to rethink their power strategy.

The sun isn’t vital just to ripen the grapes. Winemakers can harness solar power and other renewable resources to reduce one of their biggest business expenses – their energy usage.

Vintage season coincides with summer, the peak time for renewable energy generation. This is why wineries and vineyards are a natural fit for demand management. From harvesting to bottling, our energy efficiency strategies help businesses avoid the sting of high price periods.

How can vineyards and wineries manage their energy costs?

Wholesale Pricing

Unlike standard fixed price contracts, wholesale electricity pricing allows you to take control of your energy costs and pay for electricity at wholesale market prices.

Be rewarded for using more of your total energy consumption at times of high renewable generation and lower pricing.

Demand Response

Shape how and when your site uses electricity to avoid high prices. Small changes could mean big savings on your power bills.

Wine businesses can also shift their energy-intensive operations, such as irrigation and refrigeration, to periods with low or even negative prices.
