Low Emissions Energy Development Fund

     The Low Emissions Energy Development (LEED) fund provided financial support for the demonstration and commercialisation of innovative, low greenhouse gas-emissions energy technologies in Western Australia.


    The Public Utilities Office participated in the selection process and supported the Minister for Energy in determining projects to fund. The selection of projects was made jointly by the Ministers for Energy and Environment.

    The Western Australian Department of Environment Regulation manages the fund on behalf of the Ministers for Energy and Environment. LEED funding of around $30 million has been allocated to a range of projects, including wave geothermal and solar thermal power generation.

    Funding of projects in the fourth and final round has been completed.
