Sustainability Victoria (SV) has released funding for Victorian businesses to carry out an energy assessment under the new SV Business – Boosting Productivity program.
Boosting Productivity is a $3 million grants program comprising of:
- Energy assessments; and
- Industry capability grants.
An energy assessment can identify and implement energy improvements that, on average, can save more than $50,000 per annum on energy bills.
Grants are available to any Victorian business, with less than 200 full time employees and spending over $20,000 per annum on energy.
Matched funding is available at the following two levels:
|Energy Assessment||Maximum grant available for assessment||SV’s contribution||Closing date|
|Basic||$2,000||Up to 50%||28th September 2018|
|Detailed||$6,000||Up to 50%||28th September 2018|
A further implementation bonus of $3,000 is available to support businesses in implementing the assessor’s recommendations.
MRA is an experienced environmental consultancy that has submitted more than 130 grant applications to date, winning more than $30m in funding for our clients.
