This page describes the the projects, equipment and activities that are eligible under the Energy Savings Scheme
To be eligible for inclusion in the Energy Savings Scheme, an energy savings activity must involve:
Save energy by making smarter equipment choices and moving to more efficient technologies. Just about any equipment can be included if it reduces electricity use or improves efficiency.
There may be a number of small changes you can make on your site that will reduce electricity consumption. Together, these changes may save significant electricity. You may be eligible to calculate certificates from ongoing reductions in overall power consumption at your site.
NABERS is a performance-based rating system that measures the energy efficiency of existing buildings. It is based on measured operational impacts on the environment.
Making simple changes to lighting arrangements is one of the easiest ways to generate energy savings. Smarter lighting choices and moving to more efficient technologies will result in significant energy savings.
Emerging lighting technologies are LED products, induction lamps, T5 adaptors and voltage reduction units. Applications can be made to use emerging lighting technologies in specific energy savings projects.
By upgrading whitegoods, and disposing of obsolete fridges and freezes, it possible to realise large residential energy savings and create Energy Savings Certificates.
Power factor correction of motors can result in significant energy savings. Find out how to calculate those savings and create Energy Savings Certificates.
Not all activities that reduce electricity consumption are eligible.
Excluded activities include actions that do not meet the definition of a Recognised Energy Savings Activity, those required by law and energy savings already claimed under the Energy Savings Scheme or other government schemes.
