Our Investment Priorities

We support the companies and institutions that are building our future energy system.

Our funding and investment plan lists our three investment priorities and address the key areas that can help create a smooth transition to renewable energy.

2019 investment priorities

Priority 1. Integrating renewables into the electricity system

Hybrid technology iconBy investing in innovative ways to use, store, manage and share renewable energy, ARENA can help provide affordable, secure and reliable electricity for Australians through the energy transition.

Priority 2. Accelerating hydrogen

Hydrogen energy iconARENA will help drive innovation in hydrogen supply chains, from production to end use, creating opportunities across the domestic economy, and positioning Australia to become a major renewable energy exporter.

Priority 3. Supporting industry to reduce emissions

Reduce emissions iconARENA will help Australian industry reduce emissions by investing in innovative and replicable technologies and processes that increase the adoption of renewable energy (including renewable electricity, renewable fuels, solar thermal, hydrogen and bioenergy).
