Clean Energy Finance Corporation - Pay Day for Clever Businesses
The Clean Energy Finance Corporation will be a joint public private corporation charged with investing $10B in renewable energy projects.
In a report to the Federal Government there is a recommendation that the investment analysis skill be outsourced to the private sector. The immediate benefit for Australia is to build a skilled renewable energy finance sector that can assist businesses to develop sustainable renewable projects.
Further, it permits the development of clever Australian businesses to grow into the renewable energy sector in advance of competitor countries. If Australia can harness this opportunity it provides a significant fillip to Australian business and a window of opportunity to develop a new and vibrant industry that will assist domestic wealth and deliver exportable skills and products.
This is an opportunity that must be pursued as the Carbon Tax is with us and will be for sufficient time for the monies to roll out for renewable projects
