The NSW Government is offering over $16 million in funding to help manufacturing businesses save energy and money.

The funding will help you:

  • upgrade energy monitoring systems
  • replace or retrofit old, inefficient equipment
  • install new energy efficient equipment
  • improve manufacturing processes.

Round 1 funding is closed

Register your interest to be notified when the next funding round opens later this year.


How to participate

Any business with a manufacturing site in NSW can apply, as long as it:

  • has an ABN and is registered for GST
  • undertakes manufacturing activities (according to the Manufacturing Division of ANZSIC 2006) or cotton ginning.

You can apply at any time during the funding round.

Information on how to apply for future funding rounds will be available here when it re-opens.
