Expo targets energy cost savings for businesses

As the economy recovers from COVID-19, energy efficiency has become a top priority to help businesses lower their power bills and bounce back from economic impacts of the pandemic. The government is offering small businesses grants of up to $20,000 under the Energy Efficient Communities Program to help reduce their power bills, which will ease financial pressure during these tough times.

Energy efficiency has a massive potential to create jobs, cut bills and address climate change. It is more important than ever for businesses and organisations to adopt energy efficiency practices and technologies to reduce operating costs and build greater resilience.

This October, the Energy Efficiency Expo is returning to Melbourne to help businesses discover the latest energy-saving technologies and unlock the full benefits of energy efficiency. The free-to-attend exhibition and conference, organised in partnership with the Energy Efficiency Council, will showcase a wide range of energy-efficient products and services, such as LED lighting, energy management equipment and software, HVAC, thermal performance products and water-heating efficiency technology.

“The 2020 event takes place at a time where achieving energy efficiency is vital in Australia,” Energy Efficiency Expo Exhibition Director Tim Rusbridge said.

“Action on energy efficiency would immediately help those affected by the economic impacts of COVID-19. To help achieve this, Energy Efficiency Expo will provide businesses the opportunity to connect with innovative energy solutions suppliers and gain insights and strategies to empower better energy management at our conference and workshops.”

Health and safety

The health and safety of exhibitors, visitors and staff is the Energy Efficiency Expo’s number one priority.

The organisers of the event are actively monitoring the COVID-19 developments and working with the venue and relevant authorities to ensure the event will have the highest health and safety protocols in place.
