Gai Brodtmann MP, Member for Canberra, today welcomed a $502,567 energy efficiency grant for the John James Healthcare Campus in Deakin.
The grant will enable the internal and external lighting, heating, cooling and water pumping at the campus to be made more energy efficient. It will also provide for sub-metering, monitoring and reporting facilities to better manage energy usage.
Ms Brodtmann said the John James Energy Efficiency Project is a great example of the innovative projects being funded by the carbon price under the Clean Energy Future package.
“This grant will enable John James to make significant energy efficiency improvements. Today’s announcement shows how the carbon price is funding smart, cost-effective enhancements in community facilities across Australia,” Ms Brodtmann said.
“Improving energy efficiency across the economy is central to our Clean Energy Future. It will play a pivotal role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, cutting energy costs and boosting productivity.”
