Funding to foster clean technology
Grants are available to NSW’s best engineers, scientists, and researchers for their innovative solutions to lower carbon emissions and accelerate the state’s clean industrial revolution into the future.
Applications are open for the $40 million Clean Technology Research and Development (R&D) Grants program, which encourages the development of innovative technologies and services to lower industry carbon emissions.
The grants program is targeting co-investment in early-stage technologies to reduce emissions in three key areas:
- Electrification and energy systems,
- primary industry and land management, and
- power fuels, including hydrogen.
Energy and Environment Minister Matt Kean said the grants will support emission-reducing innovations developed by universities, industry, and other research organisations.
“With strong research and financial sectors, New South Wales is ideally positioned to create an ecosystem where clean technologies are rapidly developed, repeatedly innovated and scaled-up to meet our emissions targets,” Mr Kean said.
Expressions of interest close on 23 November.
