Our three focus areas
Supporting the development and continued innovation of emerging clean technologies.
This focus area will enable knowledge sharing, capacity building and collaboration between researchers, industry and government.
Laying the foundations for low emissions industries by:
- building enabling infrastructure and increasing capability of our supply chains
- fostering and supporting emerging clean manufacturing precincts in NSW.
Learn more about clean manufacturing precincts and our decarbonisation roadmaps.
Low carbon and clean manufacturing
In February 2022, an extra $300 million was announced to expand this focus area as part of the Government’s response to the closure of Eraring power station.
The Low Carbon Product Manufacturing Fund will open in 2023. It will support new industrial facilities and advanced manufacturing capabilities to help decarbonise the NSW economy. It will also stimulate investment and employment in the manufacturing of low carbon products and materials using commercialised technology. Learn more and get involved.
Developing hydrogen hubs for NSW
Up to $150 million in grant funding is available to support the development of hydrogen hubs in the Hunter and Illawarra regions.
Applications for hydrogen projects have closed, and 10 projects are currently being assessed. Hydrogen consumers can still get involved by submitting a registration of interest. Visit the hydrogen hubs page for further details.
Hume Hydrogen Highway initiative
We’ve partnered with the Victorian Government to co-deliver the $20 million Hume Hydrogen Highway initiative. This will establish Australia’s first hydrogen refuelling corridor.
Applications have closed and are currently being assessed. Visit the Victorian Government’s Hydrogen website for further details.
Helping our highest emitting industries shift to net zero and deliver significant emissions reduction by 2030.
We are working with some of the State’s largest manufacturing facilities to help them scope transformative industrial projects. With funding to support major plant and equipment upgrades we will help manufacturing fast-track their emissions reductions.
$305 million of grant funding is now available to help these sectors signiﬁcantly reduce their emissions and strengthen resilience into the future. Learn more and apply for funding today.
Net Zero Industry and Innovation will provide a range of funding opportunities for industry and business. More information about the funding cycles can be found here.
