Energy Savings Scheme.
The Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) is an energy efficiency program available for households and businesses in New South Wales.
The scheme is run by the NSW state government, designed to encourage energy efficiency improvements to reduce overall greenhouse gas emissions.
How the NSW Energy Savings Scheme Works.
Under the ESS, energy retailers achieve energy reduction targets by offering financial incentives to consumers for upgrading or installing energy-efficient products and technologies. Eligible activities under the scheme can include LED lighting upgrades, heating and cooling, solar, hot water, and approved energy-efficient appliances.

How Ecovantage Fits In.
Accredited Certificate Providers, like Ecovantage, ensure projects meet the scheme requirements, then generate energy savings certificates. Those certificates are sold on a closed market and the value is often used as an offset against the project costs.
At Ecovantage we offer end-to-end projects solutions, from current-state assessment through to project implementation and certificate generation. We also work with a network of trusted installers to carry out projects on our behalf, and our industry-leading Compliance team undertake project review and certificate applications for other energy organisations.
Australia’s Most Versatile ACP.
Ecovantage specialises in creating, trading, and supplying all energy certificates, including ESCs. We assist you in balancing the financial and environmental scales for each project.
Ecovantage provides an end-to-end service, from site audits and project management, through to generation and monetisation of the created certificates.
The treatment of certificates is based on the financial and carbon goals of each organisation. The options available are presented with their relevant outcomes on both fronts, to ensure your decision is an informed one. Ecovantage generates and trades certificates as an authorised provider through the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART).
