What is the ESS?
The Energy Savings Scheme reduces electricity consumption in NSW by creating financial incentives for organisations to invest in energy savings projects. Energy savings are achieved by installing, improving or replacing energy savings equipment. IPART – Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal
The Energy Savings Scheme is governed by NSW legislation. It places a mandatory obligation on Scheme Participants to obtain and surrender energy savings certificates, which represent energy savings. The development of the policy framework is the responsibility of the Office of Environment and Heritage and the Division of Resources and Energy.
