Practical information on energy efficiency at heart of grants program
The Energy Efficiency Information Grants (EEIG) program provides practical advice to time-poor organisations on how they can conserve energy and save money through better energy choices.
Round one of the program was an immense success, with twenty-eight successful applications from the manufacturing, agriculture, retail and tourism sectors.
These groups received grants to develop tools and training to help them understand their energy use, produce information products on how organisations can save energy, and provide on-going support services to improve energy management.
Round two of the EEIG program has now opened and eligible organisations can apply for funding up until 20 December this year.
“The Government is committed to promoting better energy efficiency – it saves money, cuts pollution and improves our living standards at home and in the community,” Parliamentary Secretary for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency Mark Dreyfus said.
