Metering Plan Implementation Grant (NSW) – Extended

January 2024: Open Now
Applications close: 5 pm AEST on 29 July 2024 or when funding is exhausted

The implementation of metering and monitoring systems is a critical step towards identifying energy-saving opportunities and building the case for equipment upgrades. 

This grant will help NSW businesses by providing up to $100,000 to cover up to 50% of the cost of implementing the recommendations of a energy metering and monitoring plan. The grant is part of the $12 million metering package that supports businesses across the different stages of the metering and monitoring process. This will help NSW businesses overcome barriers to improving energy performance and help NSW reach net zero emissions by 2050. 

Metering and monitoring can help you unlock data about your energy use and:

  • help you identify around 5 to 15% savings in energy costs
  • improve energy performance
  • understand if electrification is practical at your site  
  • access government support for equipment upgrades

Who is this for?

This initiative is for NSW businesses in the manufacturing or industrial or commercial sector.
