Power$mart Businesses

This program closed to new applications on 30 June 2020.

Energy costs make up a significant proportion of the operating costs of Tasmanian businesses. Improved energy efficiency can help lower your power bills, protect against future energy price rises, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The Tasmanian Government’s Power$mart Businesses program offered funding to review business energy use and help find ways to reduce it. The Department of Premier and Cabinet's Tasmanian Climate Change Office (TCCO) manages Power$mart Businesses.

What was funded?

The program funded energy audits on Tasmanian business operations and buildings. The audit reports for participating businesses provided practical information about ways to improve the energy efficiency of businesses.

Who did the energy audits?

The TCCO engaged a panel of expert energy auditors to deliver energy efficiency audits under Power$mart Businesses. Audits were carried out by a member of the panel, who conducted a Type 2 energy audit that meets Australian/New Zealand Standard (AS/NZS) 3598.1:2014 Energy Audits Part 1: Commercial Buildings.

What did the energy auditor do?

To comply with the requirements of AS/NZS 3598.1:2014, the energy auditor carried out a number of tasks, including:

  • an on-site visit to business premises;
  • analysis of electricity use and tariffs;
  • identification of energy saving opportunities; and
  • calculation of the financial payback for energy savings opportunities.
