The Better Commercial Buildings grants program will support owners of commercial buildings (including offices, hotels, retail, and data centres) in Victoria to identify and implement energy-efficiency upgrades that lead to an improvement in building performance. Applications are now open.

Improved building performance leads to savings in energy costs, increased tenant satisfaction and lower vacancy rates.

The program will provide grants to:

• conduct energy audits via a panel of pre-approved service providers

• implement energy efficiency upgrades of their choice

• measure and verify building efficiency improvement.

The program will also provide access to third-party finance to assist with upgrades.

See Better Commercial Buildings for more information and how to apply.
