Energy Action helped facilitate a Clean Technology grant for Diamond Power Pty Ltd for an amount of $42,569 to support a lighting upgrade.
The Minister for Industry and Innovation, the Hon Greg Combet AM MP recently announced the approval of 89 new Clean Technology grants, taking the total number of approved Clean Technology grants to over one hundred. Diamond Power Pty Ltd was one of the approved companies.
The grant will help the company implement its lighting upgrade project, which is expected to reduce its site-wide carbon emissions intensity by 15% and will result in savings of $165,000 in energy costs per year. As part of the upgrade, Diamond Power will replace metal halide and mercury vapour lamps with induction lamps while T8 fluorescent lamps will be fitted with T5 adapter kits across the entire Berkeley Vale site.
The Clean Technology Program provides support to manufacturers looking to invest in energy efficient capital equipment and low emission technologies, processes and products.
Energy Action's Activ8+ team facilitates the company's energy efficiency and sustainability partnership program with many of Australia's leading businesses.
