Government energy and resources efficiency - leading by example

Energy efficiency

We offer an integrated solution to help NSW Government agencies make substantial energy and cost savings to meet their GREP targets.

The policy applies to all general government sector agencies and it strongly recommends local government, state-owned corporations, public trading enterprises and public financial enterprises also take action. The GREP includes measures, targets and minimum standards to drive efficiency in energy, water and waste and also improving air quality.

Pre-qualified energy service companies

We have a panel of pre-qualified energy service companies (ESCos) you can access to help identify energy-efficient projects and achieve project savings. We can help you procure and manage the ESCos.

All ESCos have demonstrated technical capability, capacity to deliver and experience in similar energy efficiency projects. They can:

  • conduct detailed feasibility studies
  • design and implement energy efficiency projects
  • guarantee cost savings.

To ensure the highest standards of service and delivery we monitor and review all ESCos' ongoing performance.


We will also help you maximise capital budget for your project, by advising on your financial business case and helping you to access Crown finance from NSW Treasury.
