Draft Climate Change Fund Strategic Plan

This Draft Climate Change Fund Strategic Plan sets out priority investment areas and potential actions for up to $500 million of new funding from the Climate Change Fund over the next five years.

This draft strategic plan is a vital element to implement the NSW Climate Change Policy Framework.

The draft strategic plan proposes three priority investment areas that will form the basis of future action plans for:

Accelerating advanced energy

Up to $200 million from the Climate Change Fund will be invested in accelerating advanced energy. This investment area focuses on supporting our transition to a net-zero emissions future.

One of the potential actions in this investment area is a ‘contract for difference’ program to facilitate investment in new large-scale renewable energy projects. Visit our targeted stakeholder workshop webpage for more details of this program.

National leadership in energy efficiency

Up to $200 million from the Climate Change Fund will be invested in energy efficiency. This investment area focuses on boosting energy productivity and putting downward pressure on energy prices for households, businesses and industry.

The potential actions will support the delivery of our ambitious energy savings target to achieve 16,000 gigawatt hours of annual energy savings by 2020.

More detail on many of the potential actions to improve energy efficiency is provided in A Draft Plan to Save NSW Energy and Money.

Preparing for a changing climate

Up to $100 million from the Climate Change Fund will be invested in preparing for a changing climate. This investment area focuses on:

  • reducing costs to public and private assets arising from climate change
  • reducing the impacts of climate change on health and wellbeing, particularly in vulnerable communities
  • managing the impacts of climate change on natural resources, natural ecosystems and communities.
