The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning develops policy for the Victorian Energy Upgrades program. The program provides incentives for Victorian households and organisations to make energy efficiency improvements that save money on their bills and reduce Victoria's greenhouse gas emissions. The Essential Services Commission (the commission) administers the program as the 'Victorian Energy Efficiency Target scheme' under the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Act 2007

The VEET scheme was established under the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Act 2007 (the Act) and commenced on 1 January 2009. The scheme is administered in accordance with the Act, the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Regulations 2008 and the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (Project-Based Activities) Regulations 2017.

The VEET scheme is designed to make energy efficiency improvements more affordable, contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases, and encourage investment, employment and innovation in industries that supply energy efficiency goods and services.

Under the scheme, accredited businesses can offer discounts and special offers on selected energy saving products and appliances installed at homes, businesses or other non-residential premises. The bigger the greenhouse gas reduction, the bigger the potential saving.

Whether you are, or represent, an energy consumer wanting to access benefits under the scheme, or are a business interested in becoming accredited, or even someone looking to trade in energy efficiency certificates, this website provides the information you will need. Simply navigate to the relevant sections using the menu on the left.

On this website you will also find an explanation of how the scheme works and the roles of the various stakeholders, as well a number of registers - including the Register of Victorian energy efficiency certificates (VEECs). 

Businesses already accredited under the scheme can access their account by using the login on the top right hand side of the page. To be redirected to the main Essential Services Commission website, click here.
