EIF Support for Clean Energy Research Infrastructure


Funding from the Education Investment Fund (EIF) is supporting the creation of research infrastructure for industrial scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) and solar energy projects. Projects supported include:

  • $51.6 million to the CO2CRC to build research infrastructure to support the CarbonNet CCS Flagship in Victoria and other CCS projects such as the Collie-South West Hub CCS Flagship project.
  • $48.4 million to CSIRO to build the National Geosequestration Laboratory in support of the Collie-South West Hub CCS Flagship in Western Australia.
  • $40.7 million to the University of Queensland to build research infrastructure in New South Wales and Queensland to support the AGL Energy Photovoltaic Solar Flagship.
