On 10 July 2011, the Prime Minister, the Hon Julia Gillard MP, announced the Clean Energy Future plan to assist industry to manage the impact of a carbon price. By helping business, the Australian Government will support jobs, maintain economic competitiveness and ensure the environmental effectiveness of a carbon price.
The Department, with support from Innovation Australia, is responsible for implementing the following Clean Technology grant programs:
Investment (scheduled to commence early 2012) - The Government has committed $1 billion for transitional adjustment assistance to manufacturing businesses, which is split into:
Innovation (scheduled to commence early 2012)
The $800 million Clean Technology Investment Program will operate over seven years from 2011 12 to 2017 18. It is a competitive, merit-based, grants program. The program will provide grants from a minimum of $25,000 and will contribute on average one dollar for every three dollars contributed by grantees (e.g. Government contribution of up to 25 per cent of total eligible project expenditure).
The objective of the program is to enhance the competitiveness and adaptation to climate change of Australia’s manufacturing industry by reducing the energy or carbon intensity of firms’ manufacturing processes, facilities and/or products. It is expected to be transitional support.
The program will provide grants to existing manufacturers to invest in energy efficient capital equipment, low pollution technologies, processes and products. Applicants will be required to demonstrate that the investment is beyond routine maintenance or replacement of capital items.
To be eligible to apply for a grant under the Clean Technology Investment Program:
Applicants who are eligible to make an application under the Steel Transformation Plan are not eligible to apply for the Clean Technology Investment Program. Applicants who are eligible to make an application under the Clean Technology Food and Foundries Investment Program are also not eligible to apply unless that program’s funding is fully allocated.
