Grants for energy assessments and gas efficiency

Summary of grants

Combine subsidies and focus effort to maximise energy savings

The opportunity to combine an energy assessment with a gas efficiency grant is especially appealing.  Undertaking the energy assessment first ensures that you focus on those projects that deliver the most cost-effective savings. It may be just the right time to have an independent expert run their trained eye over your operations to identify savings to be had along with those you already know about.  Energy usage assessment grants that match funding up to $15K + $3K for implementation makes that analysis more affordable. 

Eligibility Criteria – Detailed Efficiency Assessment and Gas Efficiency Grant  

Are your stationery and on-site energy bills over $50K?    You may already have a project in mind or are looking for ideas.  Ndevr Environmental can help you prioritise projects, develop the business case and ensure you have a strong application for the gas efficiency grants. The Gas Efficiency Grants program is likely to open in September 2017. If you would like to stay in the loop and/or kick-off with a subsidised detailed energy assessment (Level 2), please contact us directly.
