The Australian Government’s Clean Energy Future plan announced in July 2011 provides transitional assistance for business and industry through various programs including the $1.2 billion Clean Technology Program. This program provides incentives for business to reduce emissions and invest in clean energy through the following three components:
- Clean Technology Investment Program ($800 million over 7 years)
- Clean Technology Food and Foundries Investment Program ($200 million over 6 years)
- Clean Technology Innovation Program ($200 million over 5 years)

These programs will be facilitated by AusIndustry, a specialist program delivery division of the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education.

In late February, AusIndustry announced the launch of the Clean Technology Program. Within this announcement, two programs were revealed in their entirety and are now open for applications from Australian manufacturers to gain access to these grants.

In line with this announcement, AusIndustry also released complex criteria for grant applications to be prepared and assessed. Whilst there are no time limitations to apply for the grants, demand is expected to be high. This means there is a level of urgency for interested companies in the manufacturing sector to lodge their applications.

Applying for grants can be a time consuming distraction to core business, with uncertainty surrounding the likelihood of being awarded the grant. Energy Action's Activ8+ team can assist your organisation identify projects that may be eligible for grant funding, prioritise these, and develop your business case and grant application with you. Contact Energy Action on (02) 9891 6911 today for more information.
