Energy efficiency grants for high energy using businesses

High energy using businesses can now apply for grants that will support them to make their energy use more efficient and to reduce their power bills.

Businesses across Australia that consume more than 0.05 petajoules annually can apply for a share in $14.8 million of grants, under the government’s Energy Efficient Communities Program.

Grants of up to $25,000 will be available for equipment upgrades that save energy, investment in monitoring systems to better manage energy use, and energy audits and feasibility studies to investigate energy efficiency opportunities.

Applicants will need to match the grant funding with an equally-sized co-contribution. More information is available at Energy Efficient Communities Program and
