The Energy Efficiency Grant (EEG) aims to help businesses within the Food Services, Food Manufacturing or Retail sectors to cope with rising energy costs, through co-funding investments in more energy-efficient equipment.
The EEG will provide up to 70% support for SMEs to adopt pre-approved energy-efficient equipment in the following categories: LED lighting, air-conditioners, cooking hobs, refrigerators, water heaters and clothes dryers. Grant support for qualifying costs will be capped at S$30,0001 per company per year.
The list of supported equipment can be found here.
You may refer to the EEG Application Checklist for some tips on how to prepare for your EEG application process.
1 The EEG is a separate scheme from the Productivity Solutions Grant (PSG).
A SME can apply for the EEG if they meet all the following criteria:
From 1 Sep 2022 (7:00AM) to 31 Mar 2023, companies will be able to submit applications for the purchase of energy efficient equipment through the Business Grants Portal (BGP). Please click here for a step-by-step guide.
Companies will have up to 1 year from the time an application is approved to purchase and install2 the equipment and submit claims for reimbursement. Once an application has been submitted, companies may choose to proceed to purchase the equipment before the application outcome. However, companies will not be able to claim subsequently if the application is unsuccessful.
2 Only the actual purchase of the equipment is supportable. This excludes other related administrative fees/charges, e.g. delivery fees, installation. Companies can only claim up to S$5,000 under the LED lighting category.
