Investment in renewables and low emission technologies will support Australian industries to decarbonise, while also providing opportunities to meet the increasing demand in global supply chains.

Potential areas of focus 

The National Reconstruction Fund Corporation may invest in commercial opportunities for manufacturing products related to:

  • renewable energy generation, transmission, distribution, or storage
  • reducing greenhouse gas emissions
  • energy efficiency
  • recycling
  • waste reduction or resource recovery.

Manufacturing does not cover the installation of standalone renewable energy infrastructure for the generation of power for general use, such as solar or wind farms. It does include opportunities such as the manufacture of:

  • components of wind turbines
  • batteries 
  • solar panels
  • hydrogen electrolysers
  • innovative packaging solutions for waste reduction.
