Renewable Technology Fund

The $150 million will support investment, through a series of grants and other financing, in the next generation of renewable technologies and demand management technologies which will improve the reliability and security of the South Australian electricity network, and improve affordability for South Australian consumers.

A key part of our Energy Plan, the objectives of the Fund are to:

  • catalyse private sector investment to support further integration of renewable technologies and demand management technologies in South Australia
  • collaborate with ARENA and CEFC in relation to investment opportunities in South Australia; and
  • fast-track South Australia‚Äôs energy transformation and improve electricity market competition.

Investment Guidelines

The Investment Guidelines for the Fund specify how these objectives will be achieved and provide guidance for proponents considering submitting a proposal seeking an investment from the Fund. In particular, the Fund may identify, assess and invest in Investment Opportunities in a number of different ways including in response to various Calls for Proposals.

Calls for proposals are now open for projects that will deliver clean, reliable and affordable power in key three categories. An additional Call for Proposal is also open for Hydrogen Infrastructure projects.
