Keep the CEFC & ARENA Clean

Clean energy funding should be spent on clean energy. But the Federal Government wants to use Australia’s peak clean energy bodies to fund dirty fossil fuel projects.

The Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) are crucial to driving innovation and investment in clean energy.

But now the Government is trying to push through dodgy legislation that would open the CEFC and ARENA up to invest in polluting gas and costly, unproven carbon capture and storage (CCS). 

Australia doesn’t need gas or CCS to transition to clean energy and our clean energy funding shouldn’t be used to prop up the declining fossil fuel industry at the cost of everyday Australians. 

Act now and join thousands of Australians calling on the Federal Government to keep dirty fossil fuels out of our clean energy funding. Sign the petition.

Will you sign?

Dear Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Federal Energy Minister Angus Taylor, 

We urge you not to change the mandates of the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) to allow dangerous investment in fossil fuel projects. 

There is no justification for opening up the CEFC and ARENA to fund polluting gas and unproven carbon capture and storage (CCS), which are not viable or necessary solutions for lowering emissions and transitioning to renewables, and will draw funds away from legitimate clean energy technologies.

Wasting clean energy funding on risky and expensive gas and CCS investments will only serve to prop up the declining fossil fuel industry, while locking Australia into many more years of high emissions and the economic burden of stranded fossil fuel assets.

We’re calling on the Federal Government to protect Australia’s clean energy funding and keep dirty fossil fuels out of ARENA and the CEFC.
