Low Carbon Australia was established by the Australian Government as an independent company with over $100 million in initial funding. The organisation’s goal is to work with businesses to develop and co-deliver energy efficiency finance solutions to help Australia move towards a low carbon economy.
The organisation manages several innovative programs specifically designed to provide financial assistance to businesses investing in energy efficient buildings, processes and infrastructure.
– Energy Efficiency Program
– Clean Energy Technology Grant Program
– Carbon Neutral Program
Low Carbon Australia’s Energy Efficiency Program provides finance and advice to businesses ready to invest in energy efficiency upgrades for existing commercial buildings and industry. Finance options include loans, operating leases, finance leases and environmental upgrade agreements.
As part of its clean energy future plan, the Australian Government is also providing assistance in the form of competitive grants under the Clean Energy Technology Program. These grants are available to help businesses and manufacturers invest in energy efficiency and realise the benefits of reduced energy costs.
Low Carbon Australia’s Carbon Neutral Program is a voluntary scheme which certifies products or business operations as carbon neutral under the Australian Government’s National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS).
Low Carbon Australia is accepting proposals on an ongoing basis. Parties may register their interest in financing opportunities at [email protected]
