New Energy Jobs Fund now open for applications
Dec 22, 2015
The Victorian Government has opened the first round of $5M from the New Energy Jobs Fund for applications. Grants will support Victorian-based projects that create long-term sustainable jobs, increase the uptake of renewable energy generation and drive innovation in new energy technologies. The Program offers grants ranging from $50,000 to $1 million. Projects under the Community category are able to apply for funding of up to $100,000 for the development of a business case or up to $1 million for project implementation and advisory services. Enhar is working with Community groups to develop exciting projects and business cases. Enhar is also working with industry and manufacturers who are building new product lines in the renewable energy space. The Fund will support Industry to bring forward Manufacturing of new energy technology, innovation in commercial and technological solutions, and to deploy energy storage products and services. From our positive and successful experience with the State SRSB and Federal CTIP programs, we anticipate some great successes in this scheme. The closing date for applications is 16 March 2016. Second and Third funding rounds are expected in late 2016 through to mid 2017. This next few months will be an exciting process of developing some fantastic proposals and we look forward to working with more communities and industry to create clean energy jobs of the future, and secure government funding where required.
