Secure a Government Grants for your LED Lighting purchase

LED Lighting is the next generation of lighting. It’s efficient and saves energy and money compared to traditional forms of lighting. The Australian Government has recognised the wider benefit this has to the community, economy and environment and has grants in place that you can apply for to supplement the cost of your LED Lighting purchase. These include:

Re-tooling for Climate Change Program

Program Status:  The program runs for four years.

Applications may be submitted at any time and will be assessed on a regular basis by Innovation Australia.  An applicant may commence work on their project once AusIndustry has reviewed its application and confirmed that it is complete and eligible. However, there is no guarantee of funding support unless and until an offer of grant is made and a grant agreement signed.

Description: The Re-tooling for Climate Change program is one of the three elements of the Clean Business Australia initiative. The other elements are the Climate Ready Program and the Green Building Fund.

The Re-tooling for Climate Change program will help small and medium sized Australian manufacturers reduce their environmental footprint, through projects that improve the energy and/or water efficiency of their production processes. The program provides grants of between $10,000 and $500,000, up to a maximum of half of the cost of each project.

Commercial Building Disclosure scheme (CBD scheme)

http://www.ausindustry.gov.au/InnovationandRandD/Re-toolingforClimateChange/Pages/Re-toolingforClimateChange.aspx

Commercial Building Disclosure scheme (CBD scheme) will commence around October 2010.

The aim of the scheme is to ensure that credible and meaningful energy efficiency

information is given to prospective purchasers and lessees of large commercial office space.

The scheme requires owners and lessors of commercial office space with a net lettable area

of 2,000 m² or more, to disclose the energy efficiency rating to prospective purchasers and

tenants when the space is to be sold, leased or subleased.

The requirements to disclose a Building Energy Efficiency Certificate (BEEC) will commence

in the second year of the scheme (around October 2011) and will include three components:

1. a NABERS Energy base building rating1

2. a tenancy lighting assessment

3. energy efficiency guidance.

NSW Green Business Program

http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/grants/ccfgbp.htm

The NSW Green Business Program provides $30 million over five years for projects that will save water and energy in business operations in NSW.

Round 1 of the Green Business Program allocated $11.7 million to 24 water and energy projects, saving an estimated 164 million litres of drinking water and 36,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions a year.

Eligibility criteria

Activities which are eligible for funding under the Green Business Program include, but are not limited to:

  • Education and technology trial activities which increase the adoption of efficient technologies and practices
  • Projects which improve the efficiency of buildings, appliances and industrial processes
  • Projects which reduce peak electricity demand
  • Projects which reduce the demand for electricity or water supplied from electricity or water supply networks – eg. cogeneration, fuel switching, water recycling, stormwater harvesting.

AusIndustry Green Building Fund

AusIndustry, a Federal Government Department, have grants ranging from $50,000 to $500,000 paid for by its Green Building Fund. These grants can be awarded for up to 50% of costs to retro-fitting and retro-commissioning of buildings to reduce base building energy consumption.

The Green Building Fund is a pool of $90m to be paid over 5 years with the aims to reduce the impact of Australia’s built environment on green house gas emissions, by reducing the energy consumed in the operation of existing commercial office buildings.
