Where we invest

Transport

Transport

Australia can reduce transport-related emissions by using proven technologies across multiple areas. It’s about:

  • Accelerating the uptake of lower emissions and electric vehicles
  • Switching from road to rail
  • Replacing diesel and petrol fuel with electricity generated by biofuels and renewables

Our Clean Energy Snapshot predicts that electric vehicles could represent 90 percent of all cars and light commercial vehicles on Australian roads by 2050.

With transport producing nearly 100 million tonnes of emissions each year – or 19 per cent of national greenhouse gas emissions – the CEFC is financing a range of measures to tackle emissions.

This includes discounted finance options for individual and fleet buyers: read more about our asset finance options.  

Our finance for major infrastructure and agriculture projects also directly targets fuel emissions. And through the Clean Energy Innovation Fund, we are financing start-up companies targeting the EV market.
