Gas efficiency in the Energy Savings Scheme (ESS)

You can now access incentives for implementing gas efficiency projects under the ESS.

Projects for households and small business

If you’re considering installing a high-efficiency gas-fired water heater or space heater, you may be eligible to access incentives under the Home Energy Efficiency Retrofit Method.

Industrial and commercial boiler and water heater upgrades

You can now use the High Efficiency Appliances for Business Method to create energy savings certificates for replacing and upgrading boilers and hot water heaters. The savings are deemed in this method, which means you don’t need any meters to verify savings.

Medium to large gas efficiency projects

For projects that will achieve significant gas savings, you may want to consider using a project based method such as the Metered Baseline Method or the Project Impact Assessment with Measurement and Verification Method. These methods require savings to be measured and verified and you can include savings from equipment that isn’t included in the methods above.

Gas Efficiency Funding

Gas Efficiency Funding has now concluded. This funding has resulted in 70 projects being implemented across NSW that are estimated to save businesses $3 million a year in energy bills. You can hear some of the stories from these businesses by clicking on the links below.

Steam trap and lagging tools

These tools were used to assess the savings of gas efficiency maintenance projects funded under the program. They may be useful to estimate savings for potential maintenance projects.
