CEFC Corporate Plan 2017-18

The CEFC's purpose is to overcome financing barriers to facilitate increased flows of finance into Australia's clean energy sector and in turn to achieve emissions reductions. The Corporate Plan provides details of how the CEFC will deliver on this purpose.

In accordance with the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013, (the PGPA Act), the CEFC Corporate Plan 2017-18 was published on 31 August 2017.

Our strategic approach is to identify the main sources of carbon emissions in the Australian economy and to understand and align our activities to the pathways that will facilitate a lower emissions economy in the future. The priority energy-related pathways (which ultimately address the majority of Australia's emissions) are:

  1. Low carbon electricity, through the increased deployment of clean energy technologies;
  2. Ambitious energy efficiency, which in all sectors will play a critical role in reducing energy intensity; and
  3. Electrification and fuel switching, from fossil fuels to bioenergy and high emissions fuel sources to lower emissions fuel sources.

These pathways inform how we structure our operations to assist with the energy decarbonisation challenge.  This transition will be achieved through a mix of centralised and decentralised new energy growth capacity.  Focussing on low carbon electricity is a core function of our business, noting the requirement under the CEFC Act that half of our portfolio be invested in renewable energy from 1 July 2018.
