Round 1 will support businesses to upgrade or replace inefficient equipment to improve their energy efficiency. These upgrades will enable industries to reduce their energy use and manage energy cost volatility in the long term. This will contribute to Australia’s target of a 43% reduction on 2005 emission levels by 2030.

The grant opportunity provides small and medium businesses with an employee headcount of 1 to 199 employees up to $25,000 to replace or upgrade existing equipment to improve energy efficiency and reduce costs.

Applications open 6 March and close on 19 April.
