Future proofing business and industry

We work with business and industry to provide business support through Cleantech Innovations Geelong.

Developing clean technologies

Clean Technologies are defined as economically viable products, services and processes that harness renewable materials and energy sources, dramatically reduce the use of natural resources and cut or eliminate emissions and wastes.

Cleantech Innovations Geelong is a business and industry support program to develop markets for clean technologies (cleantech).  Our vision is to establish Geelong as a Centre of Excellence for cleantech in Australia, by attracting investment, creating jobs and building skills.  

The program has been operating since 2014, delivering positive economic growth and sustainability outcomes for Greater Geelong.  Funding has been secured to continue providing business support during 2018-2021.

The program is a partnership funded through the Victorian State Government, the Geelong Manufacturing Council and the City of Greater Geelong.  The program is in line with Geelong’s designation as a UNESCO City of Design and the community-led 30 year vision for a clever and creative future.

Outcomes achieved under the 2014-2017 funding included:
