High Emitting Industries Grants

Grant Closes: Ongoing Value: Unspecified Run By: NSW Government Office of Energy and Climate Change Further Information: https://www.nsw.gov.au/grants-and-funding/high-emitting-industries-grants

Fifty-five industrial facilities in the manufacturing and mining sectors contribute approximately 30% of emissions in NSW. The NSW Government have committed $305 million under high emitting industries to support these sectors to significantly reduce their emissions and strengthen their resilience into the future.

This program will provide funding support for high emitting manufacturing and mining facilities in NSW that emit more than 0.09 MtCO2e per year1 to reduce their emissions beyond current projections. Funding is available to support the development and deployment of decarbonisation projects that prioritise scope 1 emissions reduction. This funding covers project feasibility through to commissioning as detailed in Figure 3. All projects must be aligned with credible  decarbonisation roadmaps and deliver emissions reduction that exceeds legislative requirements.

Two types of projects, pre-deployment and deployment, will be supported under HEI funding to accelerate adoption or to implement technically ready decarbonisation opportunities.

Pre-deployment projects
The aim of these projects is to accelerate deployment of technologies that can significantly reduce Scope 1 emissions,
aligning with Priority 2 in the NZIIP investment plan 2022–2024. Pre-deployment projects include, but are not limited to:

  • late-stage feasibility studies
  • commercial trials
  • business case development
  • front-end engineering and design.

Deployment projects
The aim of these projects is to achieve significant decarbonisation at NSW manufacturing and mining facilities. In line
with Priority 1 in the NZIIP investment plan 2022–2024, these projects are required to be technically ready and commercially proven decarbonisation opportunities. Cost-effective emissions reduction projects must align with
long-term decarbonisation pathways to be eligible to receive NSW Government capital co-funding support.
