Australian Renewable Energy Agency
Our purpose is to improve the competitiveness of renewable energy technologies and increase the supply of renewable energy through innovation that benefits Australian consumers and businesses.Read more about ARENA
We fund projects that can help accelerate renewable energy in Australia.
Our projects span from early stage research in the lab, to demonstration projects in the field.
Our Knowledge Bank provides information and insights into the renewable energy industry.
Renewable energy projects
The project will deploy 21 of Jolt’s Electric Vehicle charging and advertising panels in car parks and public spaces in NSW.Read more about the project
This project aims to demonstrate the technical and commercial viability of VFB to provide energy and frequency control ancillary services (FCAS).Read more about the project
Knowledge and Innovation
Empowering energy experts
Our role is to connect investment, knowledge and people to deliver energy innovation. Since 2012, we have been a major player in building the foundation of the renewable energy ecosystem in Australia.
Our Knowledge Bank is an open-source library of renewable energy reports, studies and tools that provide guidance and learning to benefit future renewable energy projects.Learn more
