Research, development and demonstration projects

One of the key activities managed by Coal Innovation NSW is the administration of Research Grant funding under the Coal Innovation Fund.

This funding program aims to assist emerging energy technologies, that may provide future solutions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from coal, through direct investment in research, development and demonstration (RD&D) projects.

Three Expression of Interest rounds (2009, 2015, 2018 and 2021) directly supported RD&D projects in Low Emission Coal Technologies.

The 2018 round offered two different funding options. The Seed funding stream capped funding at $100,000 over one year and aimed to support projects generating new ideas to achieve a specific goal, test an innovation or undertake essential desktop studies. The research stream was capped at $1.5 million per project with a maximum duration of three years. This funding aimed to support projects demonstrating reduced deployment timeframes of a specific technology to gain market advantage or share.
