31 March 2010 – Applications for the Green Building Fund’s last round of offers to help green commercial buildings closes 27 April.  Grants available from $50,000 to $500,000, for up to half of the project costs.

According to the website:

  • Applications will be accepted up to 5pm local time on the publicised closing date.
  • The Green Building Fund program is one of the three elements of the Clean Business Australia initiative. The other elements are the Climate Ready Program and the Re-tooling for Climate Change Program.
  • The Green Building Fund aims to reduce the impact of Australia’s built environment on green house gas emissions, by reducing the energy consumed in the operation of existing commercial office buildings.
  • Only one stream is still available: Stream A which targets owners of existing commercial office buildings. It supports them to reduce their energy consumption, by retro-fitting and retro-commissioning of these buildings.
