Energy savings and resource efficiency


Funding for gas efficiency

We’re seeking applications for funding to help your business maintain its gas equipment.

This funding will help you:

  • save gas
  • promote regular maintenance of steam and hot-water distribution systems.

You can apply for:

  • up to $10,000 of matched funding per site to replace and repair steam traps
  • up to $10,000 of matched funding per site to install lagging on steam and hot-water pipes, valves and tanks.

UPDATE: We'll also assess alternative applications

Applications for funding of an alternative project may be submitted. Alternative pipe, valve and tank lagging applications can include other maintenance projects that improve the thermal efficiency of equipment such as ovens, dryers and duct work. Alternative applications for steam traps can include other work that improves steam trap function.

The projects must result in a gas saving and will be assessed against the same criteria as conforming applications. If you have any questions about the application process or eligibility of an alternative application, please contact us.


To be eligible for this funding, your organisation must have an Australian Business Number (ABN), be located within NSW and use natural gas, LPG or biogas. Residential building projects are not eligible.
