Greener Government Buildings (GGB) is a program that improves the energy efficiency of existing government buildings to reduce operating costs and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Energy is saved through a combination of:
$33 million will be invested across a number of government buildings and infrastructure. The Government will use Energy Performance Contracts to ensure the best and most efficient solutions are identified, and savings are guaranteed, measured and verified.
Projects will include:
In instances where department or agency’s total energy consumption is too small to attract the market to deliver an EPC (usually less than 1 GWh annual electricity consumption), or the building services are relatively simple, an alternative project delivery method to EPC may be considered. In these instances, departments/agencies should contact DTF for further advice.
