Overview

Victorian Energy Upgrades is a market-based incentive program that supports improvements to the energy efficiency of homes and businesses. The Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Regulations 2008, which underpin the program, set out the level of incentive provided for activities in the program, as well as the methods used to calculate the associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions. The Regulations needed to be remade before 11 December 2018.

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning reviewed the 2008 Regulations and developed proposed Regulations to replace them. We sought comments from the public between 18 May and 19 June. The public had an opportunity to provide feedback on the proposed Regulations by completing the survey below and/or submitting a written submission using the option provided.

The Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Regulations 2018 have now been released and will commence on 10 December 2018.

Further details on these Regulations:

  • Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Regulations 2018 – the Regulations.
  • Victorian Energy Upgrades Specifications - Version 0.1 – provides further technical details of activities in the Regulations.
  • Guidelines for updating the Victorian Energy Upgrades Specifications - Version 1.0 – outlines the process for updating and changing the Specifications.
