The Clean Energy Innovation Fund is the largest dedicated cleantech investor in Australia, created to invest $200 million in early-stage clean technology companies.
The Innovation Fund targets technologies and businesses that have passed beyond the research and development stage and which can benefit from early stage seed or growth capital to help them progress to the next stage of their development.
It draws on CEFC finance and expertise to provide primarily equity finance to innovative businesses which work in the areas of renewable energy, energy efficiency and low emissions technologies.
How we invest
The Innovation Fund invests in companies with experienced and capable management teams, a competitive edge in technology and innovation, and the potential for both domestic and global market application of their technologies.
These companies demonstrate the strength of Australian innovation in the clean energy transition, and are pursuing diverse opportunities ranging from mobility and smart cities, agriculture, the circular economy and industry, and many others.
The Innovation Fund has a dedicated investment team that invests using CEFC capital and draws on the technical expertise of ARENA.
