Council Funding Opportunities

Since 2013, Ironbark have worked on funding applications with a hundreds of councils around Australia. This has included state and federal schemes that have come and gone from the small (for example developing the successful Smart Light Feasibility Study application for a Victorian local government network through the Collaborative Council - Sustainability Fund Partnerships (CCSFP) Program) to the big (for example, developing funding applications for buildings and lighting projects for councils the width and breadth of Australia through the Community Energy Efficiency Program or CEEP). For CEEP, this included developing successful applications for 64 council projects worth $70.31 million. This represents buildings and street lighting projects from Western Australia to Tasmania and everything in between.

In total we've helped Australian councils successfully secure over $110 million of funding for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.
