The EIF provided funding to not-for-profit organisations to adapt and deliver energy information, tools and resources to hard-to-reach consumers across Victoria.
The Department of State Development Business and Innovation (DSDBI) established the Energy Information Fund (EIF) to educate and empower groups not reached by mainstream information campaigns, to enable them to make informed decisions about electricity by:
- building capacity within the not-for-profit community to deliver information and education about flexible pricing, smart meters and the electricity market
- working with the Consumer Utilities Advocacy Centre (CUAC) to promote collaboration and share information resources across the not-for-profit sector.
Communities supported by the EIF included:
- culturally and linguistically diverse communities
- seniors groups
- rural communities
- people with a disability
- concession card holders
