Funding for new energy programs

Announced today in Morwell, a further four local businesses will benefit from funding under the Latrobe Valley New Energy Jobs Fund which is helping local organisations deliver new energy skills and technology – helping to generate investment and create jobs in the region.

More than $270,000 has now been awarded under the fund, following grant announcements in October last year for Federation Training, EnviroMicroBio Pty Ltd, Latrobe Valley Engineering Services and Sundermann Water Power.

The latest businesses to receive funding are:

  • $52,300 to Alternate Energy Innovations to develop equipment for wind turbine tower manufacturing and installation of a training and demonstration turbine
  • $12,000 to Ramahyuck District Aboriginal Corporation to conduct a solar farm financial feasibility study
  • $52,300 to Earthworker Energy Manufacturing Cooperative to manufacture in-house energy efficiency products
  • $50,000 to Edge Energy Solutions for a behind-the-meter energy generation and storage trial to develop an energy storage service

The funding is from the Latrobe Valley New Energy Jobs and Investment Prospectus which highlights opportunities for international, domestic and local businesses to invest in Victoria’s new energy transition in the Latrobe Valley.
