Resources

Australia’s resources sector is a vital part of the clean energy transition

– whether as a producer of key minerals for clean energy technologies or in helping drive down national emissions.

The CEFC aims to invest right across the diverse resources sector. This includes supporting the evolution of new industries while also working with established producers to enhance mining operations, drawing on energy efficient equipment, low emissions transport and renewable energy.

CEFC resource sector investment highlights include financing a 10 MW solar plant with 6 MW of battery storage at the DeGrussa Copper-Gold Mine, a unique combination of an off-grid high capacity solar power array, fully integrated with an existing diesel-fired power station. CEFC finance is also helping build a world leading, low emissions fertiliser industry in Australia, with the potential to cut emissions from fertiliser production by more than a third, supporting significant carbon abatement in the agriculture sector.
