Energy Efficiency Information Grants Program (EEIG)

In 2012, AMIC received funding from the Department of Industry as part of the Energy Efficiency Information Grants Program to help small & medium sized enterprises in the meat industry:
 Recognise energy efficiency issues in their businesses
 Provide relevant information for investigating solutions
 Develop a business plan to capture these solutions 
 Invest in those solutions and understand funding options
 Ultimately reduce their expenditure on energy
 Develop a mindset of continued improvement on energy efficiency

Having completed an extensive research and benchmarking study in association with the AMPC, the output from the EEIG Program is now available electronically on the AMIC website. Click here to find out more.
