Priority areas are guided by the NSW Office of the Chief Scientist and Engineer’s NSW Decarbonisation Innovation Study and include:
- 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
- power fuels including hydrogen – growing an environmentally sustainable NSW power fuels industry.
These grants will prioritise investments in these three areas, where clean technologies have high potential to be commercialised and scaled-up. You are strongly encouraged to review the NSW Decarbonisation Innovation Study- external site to ensure your project aligns with the identified decarbonisation priority areas.
We recognise that clean technology innovations are constantly emerging. The grant initiative has flexibility to allow for projects that fall outside these priority areas, but they must demonstrate outstanding merit.
