Asset finance

The CEFC has a strong focus on driving investment in smaller-scale clean energy projects

– and we’re working with some of the nation’s key financial institutions to help extend our finance 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.

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 finance incentivises borrowers to preference best in class clean energy assets when considering new equipment purchases, property fit outs and vehicles. The finance can cover up to 100 per cent of the cost of equipment, with projects typically valued at up to $5 million.
