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.

Reducing embodied carbon in construction
We want to be part of the solution in reducing carbon emissions in Australia and the best way to achieve our goal is by finding synergies between our developments and new green technologies and construction methods. We are pleased with the long-term support of the CEFC as it will help make the Roe Highway Logistics Park a showpiece that can inform other similar developments across Australia.Ben LisleManaging Director, Hesperia
WA project to provide supply chain resources for battery storage
Read moreThe increasing uptake of electric vehicles that use lithium ion batteries, and the growth in energy storage solutions requiring lithium supplies is driving worldwide growth in demand for lithium. Lithium is also an important component of Australia’s future energy mix. Residential and commercial scale battery storage systems are helping increase the penetration of renewable energy, while electric vehicles will be critical to the decarbonisation of our transport sector.Rob WilsonHead of Resources, CEFC
