Heritage Green Energy Grants

 The NSW Government’s Heritage Green Energy Grants are now open for eligible applicants.

The Heritage Near Me incentives program has been developed to complement current State Heritage funding programs. It provides funding opportunities and support directly to owners and managers of local heritage items.

Up to $100,000 in grant funding is available to;

  • Owners or managers of heritage buildings that are listed as a heritage item on a council’s Local Environmental Plan (LEP) or on the State Heritage Register (SHR).
  • Successful participants of an OEH energy efficiency training course.

The OEH Heritage Green Energy Grants program recognises that energy efficiency can be more difficult to achieve for heritage items because building age, materials, type of construction, size, shape and site orientation all play a role in how heritage buildings perform.

Applicants for a Heritage Green Energy Grant need to complete a training program through the EMS program before submitting an application.

Visit the Introduction to Energy Management page for details on available training sessions, or contact the EMS program on 1300 361 967 or at energy.saver@environment.nsw.gov.au.

Applications close at 5pm 28 September 2018
