ClosedGrant Closed: 3rd of June 2022 - 5:00 pm Value: $250,000 to $5 Million Run By: NSW Government Energy Saver Further Information: https://www.energysaver.nsw.gov.au/reducing-emissions-nsw/net-zero-industry-and-innovation/clean-technology-innovation/clean-technology-commercialisation-grants

The NSW Government has established the Clean Technology Commercialisation Grants to accelerate the commercialisation and scaling up of proven clean technology innovations for trade in Australian and international markets. Funded by the Climate Change Fund, these competitive grants will help unlock the next wave of low emissions technologies needed for NSW to reach net zero emissions by 2050.

The grants are designed to support low emission technologies, services and processes that have a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 6 to 9 and a Commercial Readiness Index (CRI) less than 5 in NSW. The types of activities funded by these grants include:

  • full-scale pilots and demonstration projects in operational environments to prove commercial and technical viability to customers, investors or strategic partners
  • engaging external professionals to provide commercialisation guidance such as identifying market opportunities, or developing business models, cost-down strategies, market entry and regulatory approval pathways or intellectual property (IP) management plans
  • scaling production, marketing or other activities to support customer sales in Australian and international markets
  • engaging a senior experienced executive to fill a key gap in the management team, which is essential to achieving commercialisation outcomes.

The technology innovations supported through the Clean Technology Innovation focus area will be guided by the NSW Office of the Chief Scientist and Engineer’s Decarbonisation Innovation Study.3. The decarbonisation priority areas outlined in this study, and are the prioritised for these grants are:

  • electrification and energy systems – accelerating renewable energy solutions and supporting the uptake of electrification in other sectors
  • land and primary industries – coordinating and aligning efforts in the next wave of sustainable primary industry practices as the sector contributes a significant proportions of NSW emissions
  • power fuels including hydrogen – growing an environmentally sustainable NSW power fuels industry and unlocking decarbonisation opportunities for many hard to abate sectors beyond 2030.

The application and assessment process consists of two stages: an initial EOI, followed by full application. Shortlisted EOIs will be invited to submit a full application.
