NSW is transitioning to a clean energy future. There is a clear role for innovative business models and technologies to help manage this transition and to help NSW achieve the objective of net-zero emissions by 2050.

The NSW Clean Energy Knowledge Sharing Initiative can support you as an early adopter of a new clean energy technology or business model.

The initiative aims to share stories, break down barriers and directly support clean energy projects.

A project supported under the initiative will employ a low-emissions or zero emissions technology in a way that is novel to NSW. For example, your clean energy project might include:

  • Deploying an energy storage system to shift load during the day
  • Testing a new electricity trading platform, retail model or financing mechanism
  • Developing and testing a new bioenergy clean energy source.

We are currently accepting applications for three streams of the initiative:

  1. Development of a case study
  2. Funding support for a feasibility study
  3. Funding support for a pilot project

The Clean Energy Knowledge Sharing Initiative is a NSW Department of Planning and Environment program. Applications will be accepted and processed on an ongoing basis, with applications accepted no later than 28 February 2018, or until all funding has been committed.
