Manufacturers can access $16 million in funding as part of the NSW government's Energy Saver Program.
Applications opened last Friday with up to $120,000 available per site to undertake energy efficiency projects.
Businesses that have implemented similar projects have found savings can run to over $100,000 a year, while reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
Funding can be used to upgrade energy monitoring systems, replace or retrofit old, inefficient equipment, install new energy efficient equipment and improve manufacturing processes.
The first round of funding opened on February 22, 2019 and will continue to June 30, 2019.
More information on the program is available at www.energysaver.nsw.gov.au/manufacturing
The Energy Saver program also provides an additional $3.5 million for energy intensive manufacturing businesses to improve the way they manage energy.
These manufacturers can receive free energy management system benchmarking to understand their performance against industry standards.
Participating businesses can then receive up to $30,000 of support and coaching from industry experts.
Briefing sessions will be held throughout March and April to help businesses understand the funding offers and get tips for a successful application.
