The Clean Energy Future Fund was launched in April 2020 and supports the implementation of innovative clean energy projects in Western Australia which offer high public value through contributing to one or more of the following outcomes:

  • significant, cost-effective reduction in greenhouse gas emissions below projected (or baseline) emissions as a direct result of the clean energy project
  • design, deployment, testing or demonstration of innovative clean energy projects likely to deliver community benefits or lead to broad adoption and significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.

The Fund is focused on projects near the investment-ready stage so that our funding can secure tangible emissions reductions, and applications with a strong potential for wider adoption.

Ministerial priorities

The Minister for Environment and Minister for Energy determine priorities for the fund. The current Ministerial priorities are:

  • Innovative clean energy projects in regional and remote Western Australia. Regional and remote Western Australia means projects that are at the fringe of, or are not connected to, the South West Interconnected System or the North West Interconnected System.
  • Clean energy projects that improve the security and resilience of networked electricity supply in line with the Distributed Energy Resources Roadmap.
  • Clean energy projects that support decarbonisation of existing industry and the development of new, low-emissions industries in Western Australia.
  • 'Shovel ready’ clean energy projects that will reduce emissions and create jobs in Western Australia.
  • Projects that will enhance energy efficiency and materially reduce emissions from the built environment or manufacturing.
  • Clean energy projects that support the replacement of diesel with renewable energy.
