Climate Change Fund
The Climate Change Fund (the Fund) was established in 2007 to address the impacts of climate change, encourage energy and water saving activities and increase public awareness and acceptance of climate change.
The NSW Government has released the Draft Climate Change Fund Strategic Plan for public consultation. This draft plan sets out priority investment areas and potential actions for up to $500 million of new funding between 2017–18 and 2021–22.

The Fund currently assists the NSW Government to improve energy management in NSW. It does this by contributing funding to the Energy Efficiency Action Plan (EEAP) (PDF 1.1MB) and the Government Resource Efficiency Policy (GREP). It also supports renewable energy through the Regional Clean Energy Program (RCEP) and climate change adaptation through the Enhanced Bushfire Management Program.
Previous programs supported by the Fund include: Central Coast Water Savings Fund, Energy and Water Savings Action Plans, Energy Savings Fund, Green Business Program, Home Power Savings Program, Home Saver Rebates Program, Public Facilities Program, Renewable Energy Development Fund and Water Savings Fund. Details of these programs and their related projects can be found in the Climate Change Fund Annual Reports.
The Fund was set up under the Energy and Utilities Administration Act 1987 and is administered by the Office of Environment and Heritage.
