Government Grants & Funding
Federal and State governments offer various grants and other incentives to assist with the implementation of projects that promote positive environmental or sustainability outcomes. While these programs can be great for getting marginal projects across the line, the application process can be complex and time consuming. Ndevr Environmental takes the complexities out of the process and will maximise your chances of success. We can help find the right program and facilitate the project from inception to delivery. We have successfully secured funding for clients under previous and current programs such as the:
- Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) (and former CFI);
- Sustainability Advantage
- Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA)
- South Australian Energy Productivity Program; and
- State Based energy savings schemes (ESS – NSW and VEET – VIC)
EMISSIONS REDUCTION FUND
The $2.55B ERF is the centrepiece of the Australian Government’s response to meeting our emissions reduction target. As an expanded version of the Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI), the ERF, which is administered by the Clean Energy Regulator (CER), presents opportunities for the land sector and industry to create Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs) through abatement projects and to monetise these ACCUs through an auctions process. Possible abatement projects include Industrial Energy Efficiency; Transport; Waste and Wastewater Treatment; Commercial Buildings; and Coal Mine Waste Gas.
Our experience in this space as auditors and advisors, coupled with our specialist engineering capability, sees us ideally placed to guide our clients through the end-to-end ERF process. We provide the following services:
- Project feasibility & advisory support: We conduct eligibility and feasibility assessments, develop abatement schedules and prepare ERF Project Registration documentation on behalf of our clients.
- Project development: We can assist with the internal approvals process, briefings, registration and reporting and develop bidding strategies through Ndevr Carbon Reductions.
- Auditing services: As auditors, our experienced team of specialist ERF auditors and policy analysts have helped assure the validity of millions of ACCUs issued by the CER across a range of sectors.

NDEVR CARBON REDUCTIONS
Ndevr Carbon Reductions is an affiliated business headed by one of Australia’s most experienced project developers. Ndevr Carbon Reductions monetises carbon savings under the ERF and renewable energy generation under the Renewable Energy Target.
The time and costs of navigating complicated ERF abatement methods, administering applications, reporting and auditing, bidding at auction and contracting with the Government are significant barriers to participation in the ERF. For this reason, Ndevr Carbon Reductions offers the market a lower risk end-to-end ERF solution by acting as the ERF participant instead of your company. This service is delivered without upfront fees with a reduced delivery risk.

STATE SUBSIDISED ENERGY AUDITS & TRAINING
Several States have put in place programs to encourage businesses to undertake energy audits as well as for associated training initiatives.
We are on the NSW OEH energy efficiency professionals panel and are approved to deliver energy audits and customised energy management solutions and “building the business case” training packages.
Under the Energy Productivity Program, the South Australian government assists large energy users in undertaking energy audits and implementing recommendations arising from such audits.
Ndevr Environmental can assist your organisation in accessing these funds under both schemes.

AUSTRALIAN RENEWABLE ENERGY AGENCY
The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) supports the roll-out of Renewable Energy (RE) technology in Australia by providing funding for RE projects. It provides finance for early stage innovation projects, research and development, demonstration projects and pre-commercial deployment of technologies.
Ndevr Environmental can help you determine whether your project is aligned with ARENA’s investment focus areas and can assist in accessing ARENA’s financial support, which can be complex without the advice of experienced professionals.
