Energy Security Safeguard

The Energy Security Safeguard helps ensure our energy system is more reliable, affordable and sustainable.

This is done by creating incentives to deliver cost-effective energy savings, reduce peak demand and increase the production of green hydrogen.

There are 3 schemes under the Safeguard:

Parent and child in kitchen with open fridge

The Energy Savings Scheme  supports energy saving activities for households and businesses across NSW. 

Person in takeaway shop reaches for drink in fridge

The Peak Demand Reduction Scheme  supports activities that reduce demand at peak times, including flexible demand response.

Hydrogen tank on red dirt

The Renewable Fuel Scheme encourages the production of green hydrogen.
