Materials and Energy Efficiency Projects Funding Awarded

Genesis Now is delighted by the news that 8 of our clients have been successful in applying for capital grants, under Sustainability Victoria’s Smarter Resources Smarter Business  program. This represents 12% of the all 69 successful companies. This builds on our success in earlier grant rounds. The efficiency projects include both materials and energy savings, in industries as diverse as poultry farming, timber milling, abalone processing, home building, wine, and recreation. We are grateful for the vision of Sustainabilty Victoria and the Victorian Government, and for the faith that our clients placed in us, allowing us to work with them to identify and evaluate the resource efficiency opportunities, and to build compelling business cases. Now our focus will shift to assisting these innovative companies to implement the resource efficiency projects. We will work hard to maximise the savings, by fine-tuning designs, specifying and tendering the works, commissioning and monitoring the results. This practical implementation work has the dual benefits of savings resources and costs,  and providing a practical foundation for future opportunity identification projects. The full list of successful projects and a description of the  Smarter Resources Smarter Business  program is here.
