The second-cycle of the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program has recently commenced. The second cycle reporting requirements remain largely the same, although some criteria have been amended following the EEO review. Assuming participants triggered the first cycle in 2005/06, the following key dates apply:

  • Submit second-cycle Assessment Plan by 31 December 2012
  • First assessments complete by 30 June 2013
  • First public & government report by 31 December 2013
  • Complete remaining assessments* by 31 December 2016

Corporations registered for the first reporting cycle need not re-register for the second cycle.

*Participants of the second-cycle are required to assess a minimum of 90% of the group’s total energy consumption as compared to the 80% required in the first cycle.

Deciding which areas of the business should be assessed to get new starters to 80% coverage, or second time participants to 90% energy coverage is a key consideration.

Please contact us if you would like any last minute assistance in submitting your assessment plan. We also have strong engineering capabilities you will need to complete your additional assessments during the second cycle.
