Overview

The Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) provides NSW businesses with financial incentives to invest in projects which will reduce their energy consumption. Incentives are available to install new equipment or modify a current system.

Different equipment and processes are eligible, including but not limited to:

  • lighting
  • heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems
  • motors, fans and pumps
  • compressed air systems
  • refrigeration
  • hot water and steam systems
  • furnaces

Any work undertaken must be done in conjunction with a government-approved supplier. These approved suppliers are known as Accredited Certificate Providers (ACP’s). An ACP will explain the process and assist you to get the incentive.

The ACP will calculate the potential energy saved with a proposed upgrade. This energy saving is then converted into Energy Saving Certificates (ESC’s) which are sold to an energy retailer.

Some of the money from selling the ESC’s is then returned to your business. The more energy saved, the greater the return.

What are the eligibility criteria?

To be eligible, your business must be located in NSW.
