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.

$ Available: Up to $10million.

Eligibility:  To be eligible you must:

  • be an entity incorporated in Australia and a trading corporation

Your trading activities must either:

Key Dates: Closes on 21 November 2019.
