Up to $41.2 million will be available in grants to help businesses fund a range of energy efficiency activities, such as:

  • upgrading or replacing inefficient technologies, such as changing existing display fridge cabinets with more efficient models, or gas cookers with electric equivalents.
  • improving space and water heating systems
  • conducting energy audits
  • installing energy monitoring systems.

Grants will be awarded to eligible applicants in order of application receipt in each state and territory. Applications may close early if all allocated funds for Round 2 are exhausted. If you applied in Round 1 and did not receive funding, we encourage you to consider reapplying for Round 2. Eligibility requirements have changed since Round 1, so please check the Round 2 grant guidelines carefully.
