Clean Energy Finance Corporation
The Clean Energy Finance Corporation is a government-funded financier created to fund clean energies. To achieve these goals, the Australian government has provided credits of AUD 2 billion each year from 1 July 2013.
The statutory text, the Clean Energy Finance Act 2012, states that only solely or mainly Australian-based investments are eligible for these resources.
The Clean Energy Finance Corporation financing is subject to the Australian Industry Participation (AIP) policy. This framework states that all programs enclosed in this policy must encourage the participation of Australian companies in major public and private projects carried in the country. In this sense, companies applying for a CEFC credit line must provide an AIP Plan to demonstrate the strategy to maximize opportunities for Australian industry to participate in the project. Therefore, it must be understood that the AUD 100 million (USD 77 million) credit line allocated to Dexus, includes some provisions related to local content requirements.
