Regional and Remote Communities Reliability Fund – Microgrids 2019-20

Funder:  Federal – Environment

Grant Background: The Regional and Remote Communities Reliability Fund supports feasibility studies into more reliable, secure and cost effective energy supply to regional and remote communities in Australia.

The program will fund feasibility studies looking at microgrid technologies to replace, upgrade or supplement existing electricity supply arrangements in off-grid and fringe-off- grid communities located in regional and remote areas.

The objective of the program is to support regional and remote communities to investigate whether replacing, upgrading or supplementing a microgrid or upgrading existing off-grid and fringe-off-grid supply with microgrid or related new energy technologies would be cost effective.

Emerging Energy Programme

Funder:  NSW – Energy

Grant Background: The Emerging Energy Program encourages private sector investment to support the next generation of large-scale electricity and storage projects in NSW.

The program is technology neutral and eligible projects must demonstrate that they can provide dispatchable or on-demand energy to help meet the State’s energy needs.

There are two funding streams to help speed up the development of projects to provide on-demand electricity now and into the future:

  1. Capital projects stream
  • Funding to assist with the construction of a dispatchable electricity project.
  • Anticipated grant funding of up to $10 million per project, as a guide.
  1. Pre-investment studies stream
  • Funding for activities that will lead to development of a dispatchable electricity project.
  • Anticipated grant funding of up to $500,000 per project, as a guide.

Project financial contributions are expected to at least match grant funding.
