Biography

The Centre for Energy and Greenhouse Technologies provides investment funds and support services for the development of new sustainable energy technologies. The aim of the Centre is to facilitate investment in new sustainable energy and greenhouse gas reduction technologies and capitalise both on Australia’s specific energy sector requirements and the existing clear global opportunities. Technology application can be across the entire energy spectrum from generation, transmission and distribution to end use applications – focusing on energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction outcomes. While the Centre’s investments are across the entire Research, Development, Demonstration and Commercialisation (RDD&C) spectrum, the main focus is on the Development to Demonstration phase, bridging the gap between R&D and Commercialisation.

Biography

The Centre for Energy and Greenhouse Technologies (CEGT) Pty Ltd is a private company managing a pool of funds allocated to it by the Victorian Government. Our CEGT Fund is a pre-seed / seed fund that focuses on investments in new sustainable energy companies, particularly those whose technologies are at the development to demonstration stage. This fund is managed by Cleantech Ventures Pty Ltd.

We are interested in Technologies that increase efficiency/reduce greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels (including natural gas), new methods and increased efficiency in renewable energy, carbon sequestration, enabling technologies that store, condition and control output from energy sources and optimise transmission for grid connected and distributed energy applications, improve energy efficiency in water storage, reticulation, consumption and sewage treatment, New or improved (advanced) materials and processes that facilitate any of the above.

The investment amount sought from the CEGT must be less than $1 million and cannot be greater than 50% of the total funding required. The CEGT may assist suitable candidates seeking investment finance of greater than $1 million to acquire co-investment or alternative finance from its funding partners and other sources. Our investments must also demonstrate a potential benefit to the State of Victoria.

Clean Technology portfolio companies include: Oceanlinx (wave energy), Ecoult (energy storage), Cool Energy (carbon sequestration and pollution control).
