The Australian Government is delivering an additional $10.5 million in 2019–20 to improve the energy efficiency of Australian buildings.

This includes $3.4 million to improve the energy efficiency of both new and existing homes, and $7.1 million to improve the energy efficiency of commercial buildings.

Building energy efficiency provides one of the least cost abatement options to support Australia’s emissions reduction efforts, delivering up to 45 million tonnes in emissions reductions by 2030.
