Commonwealth Community Energy Efficiency Program (CEEP)
On the 13 February 2012 the $200m Commonwealth Community Energy Efficiency Program (CEEP) opened for Round 1 funding applications until 23 March 2012.
The Australian Government has established the program to co-invest in support of local councils and community organisations to improve the energy efficiency of non-residential council and community buildings, facilities and lighting. The program will demonstrate and encourage smarter energy use.
The stated program outcomes include:
· improve the energy efficiency of buildings and community facilities
· encourage better use of energy and energy savings
· build the capacity of the energy services sector and support competitive Australian manufacturers
· contribute to the national effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
A practical upshot is the potential for lower energy bills into the future.
Grant recipients will need to match Commonwealth funds on a dollar-for-dollar basis. In line with the SA Government's comments on the draft program guidelines, community organisations with smaller projects will now have access to a lower minimum grant amount of $20,000 whereas larger and metropolitan local governments will have a minimum grant value of $50,000.
To be eligible for a grant, applicants will need to be either: a local governing body as defined in the Local Government (Financial Assistance) Act 1995; or a non-profit organisation constituted as a legal entity for at least 12 months and with public liability insurance to the value of $10 million, whose primary objective is to assist or service the community.
Eligible organisations may apply as either a single applicant or as part of a group.
A CEEP information session in Adelaide is scheduled to run in the afternoon of Monday 20th February.
