Project Details

The Government Building Energy Efficiency Investment (GBEEI) program administered by the Department of State Development (DSD) aims to reduce the Government's energy use and operational costs by improving the energy efficiency of government-owned buildings.

The program will be delivered in two stages. Milestone 1 is to identify energy efficiency upgrade opportunities in sites that use 30% of the total energy usage of government-owned buildings. Milestone 2 will be for the remaining sites.

Approved projects will have an average simple payback of seven years or less. Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) has been nominated as the principal way to deliver the projects thereby ensuring that the performance of the energy efficiency upgrades is achieved. Approved smaller, simpler projects may be conducted via a Measurement and Verification process equivalent to that laid out in the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP).

The purpose of this portal is to establish a pre-qualified list of Energy Services Companies (ESCOs) for the GBEEI program. Pre-qualified members will have demonstrated required competencies in a multitude of technical disciplines, previous experience in delivering EPC projects, and/or attained Energy Efficiency Certification Scheme accreditation. International accreditation related to EPC will be considered. Members will also have demonstrated the ability to comply with the South Australian Industry Participation Policy.

For further information visit the following web page: 

ESCOs interested in being on the pre-qualification list can apply anytime while the program is in effect. Current EPC panel members in Vic or NSW will be automatically admitted onto the pre-qualification list upon the submission of the Response Schedule, pending only on the Declaration of Intent assessment.

While the application will be an on-going process, there are new tranches for 2017 that respond to the expected time frames of bundled projects.

  • Tranche 1 closed 3 June 2016
  • Tranche 2 closed 1 August 2016
  • Tranche 3 closed 1 November 2016 
  • Tranche 4 closed 1 February 2017
  • Tranche 5 closed 30 June 2017
  • Tranche 6 - opening soon. If you wish to submit an expression of interest to participate please contact the GBEEI Secretariat

We look forward to your interest and receiving your response.
