Operational benefits of energy-efficiency

The increasing cost of energy in recent years has placed additional pressure on NSW Government budgets.

The State’s electricity bill increased from $315 million in 2011-12 to $390 million the following year. In response, the Government released the Energy Efficiency Action Plan (EEAP) in August 2013, to drive budget savings through the upgrade of lighting, heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, motors, white goods and other energy consuming assets.

The EEGP was established under EEAP to direct NSW Government agencies to save $27.5 million per year on their energy bills and to provide up to $170 million in Crown finance to invest in energy-efficiency upgrades to existing Government assets.
