As part of the REIF, ACT Government facilitates a grants program to offer flexible, early-stage funding for renewable energy projects, initiatives and research. The grants support a broad range of new and emerging technologies and ventures. These have the potential to support the delivery of the energy vision of the future.

The grants also support the development of the ACT as an export-oriented hub for renewable energy innovation and investment.

Applications for the third round of the Renewable Energy Innovation Fund (REIF) grants program are now open.

Up to $1.5 million in funding available as part of the third round and projects can apply for funding between $50,000 and $300,000. Applicants must have matched finding to support the ACT Government’s contribution either through private funds, Commonwealth Government funding, in-kind contributions or a combination of these sources.

For more information about the grants and how to apply please refer to the REIF Grants Guidelines [PDF 262KB].

Applications for REIF grants will close at 11.59pm on 16 January 2023.

Funding is open to businesses or ventures that meet the eligibility criteria outlined in the Grants Guidelines [PDF 262KB].
