Alternative fuels

Alternative fuels – such as hydrogen, biofuels and bioenergy – are a critical part of the decarbonisation transition and will be essential to the achievement of industrial and transportation decarbonisation in particular.

These diverse low carbon fuels have the potential to provide energy solutions for hard-to-abate sectors and processes, from green steel manufacturing to renewable industrial heat, sustainable aviation fuel and the production of essential chemicals. CEFC finance aims to help accelerate the evolution of alternative fuel feedstocks, processes and end-user markets, working with institutional investors to back early-stage and demonstration projects. This includes finance for hydrogen-related technologies through the Advancing Hydrogen and Innovation Funds, alongside investments in large-scale waste and recycling.


Australian hydrogen market study

Low carbon hydrogen is emerging as a potential key vector for the future of the Australian energy transition and the industrial economy. This study explores the costs of production and the competitiveness of low carbon hydrogen in 25 Australian end-use sectors, relative to the incumbent technology.
