Alternative energy solution sessions for business

Friday 13 October

Two upcoming information sessions will help businesses using gas or considering solar power to find out how to reduce the pressure of rising energy bills.


East Gippsland Shire Council will hold a talk about business opportunities for renewable energy on Monday, October 16 from 6-8pm at the Riversleigh in Bairnsdale.


Part of council’s Bright Futures Renewable Energy project, the evening will outline opportunities for renewable energy and give an overview of the recent business consultations and survey results. RSVP to council on 5153 9500 for this session.


Sustainability Victoria will host a gas and energy masterclass on Tuesday, October 17.


Aimed at engineering and technical staff, the session will be delivered by business energy specialist Kevin Joyce who has more than 30 years’ experience helping businesses improve gas efficiency.


The masterclass is part of a package of Sustainability Victoria programs which include grants of up to $50,000 for businesses that use high volumes of gas.


The grants can be used to support gas-related projects including capital equipment upgrades, non-routine maintenance and repairs, fuel switching, and improving metering at different points of the production process.   


The Gas Efficiency Masterclass covers:

  • Gas tariffs
  • Gas steam and hot water boiler efficiency
  • Direct gas heating efficiency
  • System maintenance for quick savings
  • Fine tuning systems to improve efficiency
  • Renewable energy options
  • Government grants and other support
  • Financing your project

The Gas Efficiency Grants will offer matched funding of up to $50,000 to help eligible businesses with the cost of a variety of gas-related projects that will improve energy productivity and affordability, support jobs, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
