Where we invest

The CEFC invests in industry sectors with the strongest potential to reduce Australia's carbon emissions - these are our 'decarbonisation pathways'. Our investments are targeted toward:

  1. Projects to support low carbon electricity, through the increased deployment of renewable energy technologies and energy storage
  2. Increased use of technologies to deliver ambitious energy efficiency, particularly in electricity generation, transport, property, infrastructure, manufacturing and agribusiness sector.
  3. Accelerated electrification and fuel switching, especially in the transport sector, to support the transition from fossil fuels to bioenergy and other low emissions fuel sources.

We invest in businesses and projects which develop and commercialise clean energy technologies,  or are involved in the clean energy supply chain. We focus on projects and technologies at both the early and later stages of development, and investments through debt, equity or a combination of both.
