Learn about requirements for products that can be installed under the Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program, and how to use our Register of Products.
Products eligible for use in the VEU program
Activities undertaken in the Victorian Energy upgrades (VEU) program must involve the installation of eligible products by accredited persons.
Products that meet the criteria in the program’s VEET Regulations and VEU specifications are able to be installed by accredited persons under the VEU program.
Our Register of Products lists the products (brand and model) that can be installed under each of the program's activities. Accredited persons can install any product listed on the register with the status of ‘approved’ and create Victorian energy efficiency certificates (VEECs) for its installation, provided they are accredited for the corresponding activity.
Please note that if you install products not yet listed on the commission’s Register of Products, you do so at the risk that VEECs for that activity may not be able to be created. VEECs can only be created for activities involving products which have been approved by us, as listed on the Register of Products (where the activity requires installation of a product).
Products installed under project-based activities
Products installed as part of project-based activities are not required to be listed on our register, with the exception of lighting and lighting equipment which must be listed as per the same criteria for lighting upgrade activities (activities 27, 34 and 35 (as applicable)).

We do not endorse products listed on this register and will not be held liable for the failure of a product to meet claims made by the manufacturer. Please read our full disclaimer.
If a product is listed on the register as ‘pending assessment’, accredited persons are not required to submit an application for the product. However, for products with this status, accredited persons approved to undertake a relevant activity can nominate the product which helps us prioritise assessment of products most in demand under the program.
Approved: The product is eligible to be installed under the VEU program. It has been assessed as meeting the minimum criteria as specified in the specifications based on the documentation submitted.
Pending Assessment: An application has been submitted for this product but we are yet to determine whether the product is capable of achieving the minimum criteria specified in the VEET Regulations and/or VEU specifications. Accredited Persons who install a product with a status of ‘pending assessment’, do so at their own risk.
Withdrawn by Account: The applicant has withdrawn their product application from assessment.
Withdrawn by ESC: We have withdrawn the application as the product is not capable of meeting the minimum criteria specified in the VEET Regulations and/or VEU specifications based on the documentation submitted.
