Industry Researcher Collaboration GuidelinesThe second round of the R&D Program promotes industry and research partnerships that seek to develop and commercialise renewable energy technologies, and to provide a broader range of energy options to reduce future energy costs.Projects must develop industry-research partnerships with at least one eligible Australian research institution (research partner) and at least one industry partner and address one or more of the four key technology focus areas.
Key technology focus areasProjects must address one or more of the following four key technology focus areas:
- Balance of System (BoS) cost reduction (either on-grid or off-grid)
- Integration and high penetration of renewables into networks (either on-grid, off-grid or mini-grids)
