Energy Efficiency Grants
2 March 2023
The Australian Government is providing grants worth between $10,000 and $25,000 to small and medium businesses to upgrade or replace inefficient equipment to improve their energy efficiency and reduce power use and bills.
The first round of energy efficiency grant applications opens on 6 March and will close on 19 April, or earlier if the $16 million available in this round is exhausted. The grants are available in all industry sectors and can be used for energy efficiency measures such as energy monitoring systems or upgrades to existing equipment to improve energy efficiency.
The government advises grants will be distributed between states and territories based on the distribution of small and medium sized businesses nationally. It expects a high level of interest and grants will be awarded to eligible applicants on a first come, first served basis.
