Government support

Team up with Photon Energy to prepare projects eligible for CEFC finance support, ARENA funding or ERF support.

Photon Energy is actively engaged in projects which are eligible for CERC, ARENA or ERF support and is looking for energy users who want to further improve the feasibility of Solar, Solar Storage and Energy efficiency projects.

ARENA funding

ARENA is the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, a commercially oriented agency established by the Australian Government on 1 July 2012. It has two objectives: to improve the competitiveness of renewable energy technologies, and to increase the supply of renewable energy in Australia.

There is approximately $2.5 billion in funding available to:

  • fund renewable energy projects
  • support research and development activities
  • support activities to capture and share knowledge.

Photon Energy is actively engaged in projects which are eligible for ARENA funding and is looking for energy users who would like to take advantage of available funding to further improve the feasibility of Solar, Solar Storage and Energy efficiency projects.

CEFC funding

The Clean Energy Finance Corporation operates like a traditional financier. It works collaboratively with co-financiers and project proponents to seek ways to secure financing solutions for the clean energy sector. Using a full range of financial instruments, the CEFC co-finances and invests, directly and indirectly, in clean energy projects and technologies.

The CEFC focuses on projects and technologies at the later stages of development which have a positive expected rate of return and have the capacity to service and repay capital. They can also look at earlier stage projects which have significant support and a risk profile appropriate for CEFC.

ERF funding

The Emissions Reduction Fund aims to reduce Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions by providing incentives for a range of organisations and individuals to adopt new practices and technologies to reduce their emissions. A number of activities are eligible under the scheme and individuals and organisations taking part may be able to earn Australian carbon credit units (ACCUs). One ACCU is earned for each tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2 -e) stored or avoided by a project. ACCUs may be kept or sold to generate income, either to the Government through a carbon abatement contract, or on the secondary market. Emissions Reduction Fund projects must be conducted according to an approved method. Approved methods include all Emissions Reduction Fund methods and all original Carbon Farming Initiative methodology determinations.
