From food processors to building materials producers, Australia’s manufacturers have a wide range of energy needs that can be addressed through cleaner energy
– and the benefits can go well beyond energy and emissions savings, delivering lower maintenance costs, improved equipment life expectancy, reduced water consumption and improved site conditions.
Manufacturing is vital to the Australian economy, contributing around $100 billion to gross domestic product each year, and supporting nearly 900,000 jobs.
CEFC research has identified a range of practical and proven strategies to deliver energy and cost savings across manufacturing operations. In addition to direct investments, we finance clean energy equipment upgrades and renewable energy installations in the manufacturing sector through our tailored asset finance programs.
