City of Sydney: Environmental Grants

Owners corporations are now eligible for new environmental grants from the City of Sydney Council.

Round 3 of the grants opens on 1 August 2016.

Building operations grants:

Funding is currently focusing on water consumption and is available for:

  • Water sub-metering – funds up to $10,000 per building for:
    • installation of a monitoring device on the main meter to track whole of building water use
    • installation of monitoring devices to track usage such as tenant water use, pool equipment and cooling towers
  • Water efficiency upgrades – funds of up to $10,000 per building to improve water efficiency in individual apartments by upgrading to more efficient showers and taps.

Water and/or energy assessments - Funds up to $10,000 are available to undertake a range of water and energy assessments that could include lighting assessments, technical investigations of plant and equipment, or whole building water and energy assessments. The grantee is expected to implement energy and water efficiency measures based on the outcomes of the assessment. This can be negotiated on a case by case basis.

Innovation grants to support the development or implementation of new technologies or processes that are currently not being used in the local market, but have the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve efficiency.
