Small and medium businesses can start preparing applications now for energy efficiency grants valued between $10,000 and $25,000.

Up to $41.2 million in funding will be available in Round 2 of the Australian Government’s Energy Efficiency Grants for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises.

Due to the demand on the Business Grants Hub portal, the opening of applications will be staggered over 5 consecutive business days, starting from Thursday 22 February 2024. This will give you ease of access to apply for a grant using the portal.

You must apply in the application round for the state or territory where your grant project will be physically located. Applications in South Australia open on Friday 23 February at 12.00noon.

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.

You are encouraged to prepare before Round 2 opens—you can read the grant guidelines and start preparing your application now on the Business Grants Hub portal
