Investing in our local renewable energy industry

The ACT has a dynamic, knowledge-based economy. We have the second highest concentration of renewable energy jobs in Australia.

We already achieved our 100% renewable electricity target in 2020. We now have a strong focus on distributed battery storage.

We’re home to institutions with world-class research capabilities and experience in clean energy technology, economics and policy.

Doing business in Canberra means contributing to a future that is genuinely sustainable.

Renewable Energy Local Investment Framework

We want to attract renewable energy businesses and investment in the ACT.

Under the framework, we’re working with renewable energy companies to:

  • support local business by hiring regional contractors and local labour
  • build the ACT's capacity as a tertiary education and trades hub
  • stimulate research partnerships
  • grow the local corporate footprint of national and international businesses.
