Applications are open for New South Wales’ $40 million Clean Technology Research and Development (R&D) Grants program which encourages the development of innovative technologies to lower carbon emissions.
Grants are available for the state’s best engineers, scientists, and researchers for their innovative solutions to lower carbon emissions and accelerate the state’s clean industrial revolution into the future.
The grants program is targeting co-investment in early-stage technologies to reduce emissions in three key areas:
- Electrification and energy systems
- Primary industry and land management
- Power fuels, including hydrogen
New South Wales Energy and Environment Minister, Matt Kean, said the grants will support emission-reducing innovations developed by universities, industry, and other research organisations.
“With strong research and financial sectors, New South Wales is ideally positioned to create an ecosystem where clean technologies are rapidly developed, repeatedly innovated and scaled-up to meet our emissions targets,” Mr Kean said.
Expressions of interest close on 23 November. More information about the Clean Technology Research and Development Grants program can be found at https://www.nsw.gov.au/news/funding-to-foster-clean-technology
