The Energy Efficiency Opportunities Act 2006 took effect on 1 July 2006 (with an amendment in March 2007). It aims to improve the identification and evaluation of energy efficiency opportunities by large energy using businesses and, as a result, to encourage implementation of cost effective energy efficiency opportunities.
In order to achieve its aim, the Act requires large energy using businesses to:
- undertake an assessment of their energy efficiency opportunities to a minimum standard in order to improve the way in which opportunities are identified and evaluated
- report publicly on the outcomes of that assessment in order to demonstrate to the community that those businesses are effectively managing their energy.
The Act outlines the broad requirements for large energy using businesses, and allows for Regulations to provide detailed requirements for assessment, reporting, verification and other elements of the program.
