How we contribute
We contribute funds to renewable energy projects according to our General Funding Strategy and Investment Plan.
We use the principles in the General Funding Strategy to identify investment priorities, which are outlined in the Investment Plan.
All funding proposals are assessed for best fit with the investment priorities.
