Funding ideas today to realise tomorrow’s climate solutions


We’re accelerating clean technology solutions from idea to market-ready by providing funding and support throughout the entire product development lifecycle.

We are investing in a diverse range of projects from commercialisation and pilot schemes to start-up ecosystems and cutting-edge infrastructure. This will turbo charge the research, development and commercialisation of technology that will help NSW achieve net zero by 2050.

In 2023, we invested $15.9 million in 12 successful projects as part of our round 1 funding, to create an innovative and thriving clean technology community in NSW.

Learn more about our successful round 1 projects developing across NSW.

Learn how round 2 funding is accelerating new clean technology ideas into market-ready products, under the Net Zero Manufacturing Initiative.

NSW Decarbonisation Innovation Hub

One of the ways we’re bringing ideas to reality is by funding the NSW Decarbonisation Innovation Hub to create a thriving entrepreneurial clean technology community in NSW.

Based at the University of New South Wales, the hub brings together government, industry, and researchers to accelerate new clean technology.

This exciting project is helping create new jobs and high-tech businesses, while developing expertise in emission reduction technology.

Clean technology research and development grants

We are also investing $40 million in the research and development (R&D) of commercially viable technologies, services, or processes. These are technologies that have the potential to significantly reduce emissions of high emitting or hard-to-abate sectors within the NSW economy. This initiative is funded and administered by the NSW Environmental Trust.
