Clean energy start-ups are gearing up for the potential opportunities provided by the newly-imposed carbon tax, despite widespread uncertainty in the business community over the rising costs associated with the scheme.
The new $10 billion Clean Energy Finance Corporation will help under-resourced green start-ups catch up with their overseas counterparts, according to industry figures.
A coalition of unions, investors and renewable energy groups have called upon the Government to create a new clean energy technology fund in conjunction with a carbon price.
Start-ups in the renewable energy sector have been pledged greater support with the establishment of a venture capital fund for the industry.
Ask any moneyed investor where start-up capital is set to flow in the coming years and there’s an excellent chance that the clean energy sector will be high up on the list.
