EEO Program Closure

The Government has decided to close the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) Program, with effect from 29 June 2014.

Since it commenced in 2006, the EEO Program has been successful in raising Australian industry’s awareness of the potential savings achievable through energy efficiency activities.  For a number of reasons, including rising energy prices, continued improvements in energy management in Australian industry have been made over the last eight years.

In line with the Government’s commitment to reduce costs for business and its deregulation agenda, it has announced its intention to repeal the Energy Efficiency Opportunities Act 2006 from 29 June 2014.

Should the repeal Bill pass after this date, it will be applied retrospectively to remove compliance obligations for corporations with effect from 29 June 2014.

The Government will continue to cooperatively explore options for improving energy productivity through the current Energy White Paper process.

Program information and materials will continue to be accessible on the EEO website.  Please contact the EEO hotline on 1300 799 186 if you have any questions.
