The Centre, a private company, is an investment and service provider focussing
exclusively on the development of new sustainable energy and greenhouse gas
Investment in new sustainable energy technologies is the largest sub-sector
of the fast growing cleantech (clean technology) investment sector. Cleantech
technologies are those that provide superior commercial returns compared to
incumbent technologies while simultaneously addressing significant environmental
and resource issues such as greenhouse gas emissions, water scarcity and quality,
waste and recycling.
By identifying and attracting new technologies that require investment to reach
the demonstration or commercialisation stage, the Centre in conjunction with
co-investors aims to generate venture capital grade returns on its investments
by meeting the growing Australian and global demand for these technologies.
