Clean technology innovation

Helping NSW’s brightest minds make innovative climate solutions a global reality.

 

Right now, we don’t have the technology to tackle almost half of the global emissions needed to reach net zero by 2050.

To help solve this, we are investing in researchers, innovators, and entrepreneurs across NSW to fast-track the emerging clean technology solutions we need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

A thriving clean technology community in NSW creates huge economic growth fuelling new investment, new jobs and new opportunities for businesses and communities.

Round 2 funding opportunities are now open as part of the Net Zero Manufacturing Initiative. Use our eligibility checker to select the right funding stream for your product or project and register for one of our upcoming online Q&A sessions.
