We regulate participants and products in the Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program to deliver energy efficiency improvements which are more affordable for consumers, and reduces their long term energy consumption.
Victorian Energy Upgrades program
The Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program reduces greenhouse gases by providing access to discounted energy efficient products and services.
We regulate participants and products to provide confidence in the benefits delivered to consumers and a balanced, transparent and efficient program for participants.

View the latest program updates and presentations, read about our reports and reviews, and access our activity registers and VEEC calculator.
In 2017 we created 8.5 million Victorian energy efficiency certificates, each one equal to one ton of greenhouse gas abated by energy-saving products. We also passed 50 million certificates created since the program commenced in 2009.
Our registers provide information about program participants and activities undertaken in the program. Accredited persons can also access the VEEC calculator to find out how many certificates their energy efficiency upgrade can generate.
We have introduced new requirements to minimise safety risks associated with the replacement of lamps, in particular compact fluorescent lamps (activity 21A of the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Regulations 2018).
We have finalised our training and licensing requirements for incandescent GLS or compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) replacement activities (activity 21A).
We have updated our process to refer suspected non-compliant VEU activities to Energy Safe Victoria and made changes to the building based lighting upgrade (activity 34) VEEC assignment form template. The updated assignment form applies from 7 March 2019.
