Asset finance

Asset finance

The CEFC has a strong focus on driving investment in smaller-scale clean energy projects and has teamed with some of the nation’s key financial institutions to help us reach and support businesses across Australia. Through our programs with banks, specialised lenders and funds, we are delivering the benefits of clean energy to energy users, whether on the farm, in households, on the road or in a factory.

Our investments are made via wholesale debt facilities provided to co-financiers, who use that capital to provide low cost finance to borrowers investing in smaller-scale clean energy assets around the country. The finance can cover up to 100 per cent of the cost of equipment, with projects typically valued at up to $5 million.

Eligible projects range from small-scale rooftop solar and battery storage, to energy efficient manufacturing and farm equipment, as well as improved building insulation, heating and cooling, demand management systems and low emissions or electric light vehicles.

The programs are an efficient, effective and timely mechanism to enable a large number of Australian households and businesses to draw on CEFC finance. At the same time, they encourage increased investment in clean energy technologies, by incentivising borrowers to preference best in class clean energy assets when considering new equipment purchases, property fit outs and vehicles.
