This program will co-fund energy efficiency and electrification upgrades for local governments to deliver reduced energy bills and emissions from local government owned and/or operated facilities.

The objectives of the program are to support:

  • the Government’s broader efforts to reduce emissions and improve energy performance and contribute to Australia meeting its emission reduction targets of 43 percent by 2030, Net-Zero emissions by 2050 and 82% renewable electricity generation by 2030
  • local governments to decarbonise their operations and reduce energy bills through energy efficiency and load flexibility upgrades and electrification of their facilities
  • the improvement in energy performance necessary to more easily utilise renewable electricity and improve system reliability.

The intended outcomes of the program are:

  • reduced energy bills and emissions from local government owned and/or operated facilities
  • installed energy efficiency, load flexibility and electrification technology that is commercially available
  • improved capability of local governments and the wider community to implement energy upgrades and electrification projects in their facilities.
  • increased capacity of domestic supply chains and labour force to support significant future investment in energy efficiency upgrades
  • improved workforce skills in delivering and operating energy transition projects.
