Energy Saving Scheme

Energy Saving Scheme

What is the ESS?

The Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) is a government initiative implemented in various states of Australia, including New South Wales (NSW), Victoria, and South Australia. The primary goal of the ESS is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote energy efficiency by incentivizing energy-saving activities and projects.


Under the ESS, businesses, households, and other entities can earn financial incentives, typically in the form of Energy Savings Certificates (ESCs), for implementing energy-efficient measures. These measures can include upgrading to energy-efficient appliances, installing energy-saving lighting systems, improving insulation, and implementing other energy-saving technologies and practices.

The Steps

How to apply for the ESS scheme ?

To apply for the Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) scheme, follow these steps:

  1. Contact the Service Provider: Reach out to the service provider like Power Promote who can guide you through the process and assist you in implementing energy-saving measures.

  2. Energy Audit: The service provider in collaboration with the accredited provider will conduct a thorough energy audit of your property to assess your current energy usage and identify opportunities for energy savings.

  3. Proposal: Based on the energy audit findings, the provider will present a proposal outlining recommended energy-saving measures and projects tailored to your specific needs and goals.

  4. Agreement: Once you agree to the proposed energy-saving measures, you’ll need to enter into an agreement to proceed with the implementation process.

  5. Installation: The accredited provider will oversee the installation of the energy-saving measures, ensuring compliance with ESS requirements and standards.

  6. Verification: After the installation is complete, the provider will conduct a follow-up audit to verify energy savings and calculate the number of Energy Savings Certificates (ESCs) generated by the project.

  7. ESC Creation: The service provider will facilitate the creation of ESCs based on the verified energy savings. These ESCs can then be traded or sold to electricity retailers to offset their ESS obligations.
