ClosedGrant Closed: 2nd of November 2023 - 5:00 pm Value: $1 Million to $100 Million Run By: Australian Government Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=05d1c7c8-a2bc-4bc8-abdb-0e7b9658d992

This grant opportunity was announced in alignment with the Powering the Regions Fund (PRF) objective of supporting the development of new clean energy industries.

Funding of $200 million has been allocated to the Critical Inputs to Clean Energy Industries – Cement, Lime, Alumina and Aluminium Sectors to help these sectors maintain a presence in Australia and continue to deliver critical inputs for the infrastructure and supply chains needed for Australia to be a renewable energy powerhouse.

The objectives of this grant opportunity are to:

  • support and sustain sovereign manufacturing capability during the net zero transformation
  • ensure the continued availability of locally produced, cement, lime, alumina and aluminium, which are critical inputs to the clean energy supply chain
  • support the development of low emissions cement, lime, alumina and aluminium sectors consistent with the Australian Government’s climate commitments
  • advance the development of new clean energy industries, aligned with Australia’s ambition to become a renewable energy powerhouse
  • reduce the risk of carbon leakage, which occurs when a business responds to emissions reduction policies by moving emissions-intensive production to a country with less stringent policies
  • encourage collaboration on decarbonisation planning within each hard-to-abate sector.
