Renewable Energy Description:

Renewable Energy Demonstration Program (REDP) provided large grants to fund renewable energy power generation demonstration projects using various technologies across a range of geographic areas, up to one third of the eligible expenditure on each project. The grants supported the commercialisation and deployment of large scale, grid feeding, renewable energy projects.

Six projects were funded:

  • two geothermal projects (AUD 90 million and AUD 62 million),
  • one ocean energy (AUD 66 million),
  • one integrated energy (AUD 15 million) and
  • two solar (AUD 35 million and AUD 60 million).

The projects funded through the Renewable Energy Demonstration Program (REDP) were transferred to the Australian Renewable Energy Agency.
