If your business uses more than 1,000GJ (about $30,000) of gas each year, you can now apply with the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) for grant funding to implement a gas efficiency project.
Up to $40,000 of matched funding is now available to implement a two-stage project:
Stage 1 – Installation of gas measurement and monitoring systems including gas and steam sub-meters and data-logging systems.
Stage 2 – Implementation of gas efficiency improvement projects including:
– The installation of boiler economisers;
– improvements to boiler blowdown and condensate return systems; and
– the recovery of heat from refrigeration or compressors to offset gas use.
You can now also apply to generate Energy Saving Certificates for your gas project under the Energy Savings Scheme (ESS), further offsetting the cost of implementation.
Applications for the second round of funding close on 10 June. To download an application form visit the OEH website HERE, or contact an EMS consultant on (02) 4954 6100.
