The $11.7 million Business Energy Advice Program (BEAP) is delivering trusted advice to help small businesses get better energy deals and increase their energy efficiency.
The program provides 2 free services for eligible small businesses:
1. An energy advisory service that delivers face-to-face, phone and digital advice to small businesses across Australia. This service helps small businesses understand their energy savings opportunities, choose the best energy plan for their business, and receive tailored advice on energy efficiency opportunities best suited to their industry.
2. An energy spend benchmarking tool that allows small businesses to compare their energy spend against similar businesses in their industry and region. The purpose of the tool is to provide information on whether they are paying too much for their energy. The data which underpins this tool supports a ‘true’ comparison based on business type, location and other relevant characteristics.
