CEFC and Low Carbon Australia

The energy efficiency investment portfolio and activities of Low Carbon Australia Limited (LCAL) have been transferred to the CEFC.

LCAL was established in 2010 as an Australian Government owned company to manage an energy efficiency investment fund.

LCAL's pioneering work in developing innovative direct and indirect models and solutions for financing energy efficiency has proved a valuable resource for the CEFC. CEFC is continuing these programs and is scaling up successful models to bring them fully to sustainable market size.
