How to Apply for Funding

Step 1 - Read the program guidelines
  • Funding Round Guidelines

    The Future Fuels Fund aims to address barriers to the roll out of new vehicle technologies.

    The first Round of the Future Fuels Fund will see $16.5m made available to fund battery electric vehicle (BEV) public fast charging infrastructure in capital cities and regional centres.

    ARENA defines a fast charging station as a publicly accessible location able to charge a BEV at 50kW or above. A full list of the eligible Geographic Zones, minimum installation requirements and funding available, is included in the Future Fuels Fund Round 1 Guidelines.

    The Future Fuels Fund Round 1 Guidelines describe the requirements that must be met to submit an eligible application and the process that will be used by ARENA to assess applications. Round 1 of the Future Fuels Fund is a one stage competitive process.
