3 1. Background The New Energy Jobs Fund is an initiative under the Future Industries Fund supports high growth, as part of the Victorian Government s Back to Work Plan to create 100,000 jobs and get Victoria back to work. The Future Industries Fund identifies six sectors which have strong growth potential, including: medical technologies and pharmaceuticals; new energy technology; food and fibre; transport, defence and construction technologies; international education; and professional services. New energy technology sector is a critical component of the Future Industries Fund. As the adoption of new energy technology across Australia and the world grows, it is critical that Victoria position itself to take advantage of the economic opportunities that are arising from the transformation occurring in the energy industry. There are a number of measures the Andrews Labor Government is implementing to support the new energy technology industry in Victoria. This includes addressing regulatory barriers that impede the delivery of new energy products and services and developing a New Energy Technology Strategy. The Government is also providing targeted financial assistance to local communities and businesses through the New Energy Jobs Fund. The purpose of these Guidelines is to set out the objectives, assessment criteria and application process for the New Energy Jobs Fund. 2. The Program 2.1. Objectives The New Energy Jobs Fund (the Program) assists Victorian based new energy technology projects that: create long-term sustainable jobs; drive economic development; promote community participation; increase the uptake of renewable energy generation; reduce greenhouse gas emissions; drive innovation of new energy technologies; and build new energy technology capability and capacity in the State. The New Energy Jobs Fund will support generation projects that deliver energy from renewable sources only Overview The Program will support new energy technology projects in the following categories: 1. Community This category supports both the development of new energy or renewable energy project business cases and the implementation of projects for the benefit of local communities. 1
4 This category will also assist the establishment or expansion of advisory services to consumers, communities and businesses on best practice application of new energy technologies or systems. Only not-for-profit organisations, co-operatives, social enterprises or local councils will be eligible to apply under this category. It will assist these organisations to take positive steps towards delivering social, environmental, economic and technological benefits and sustainable outcomes to their local communities. Community-based projects funded for business case development in the first or second years (from this or other government programs) will be eligible to apply for project implementation funding in subsequent year(s). 2. Manufacturing This category will support the manufacture of new energy technology components or systems. 3. Technology This category will support industry to optimise, adapt or integrate commercially-available new energy technologies (including advanced metering infrastructure). This includes demonstration of new business models for financing deployment of technology in ways which can be replicated by other businesses. 4. Energy Storage This category will advance the development and deployment of energy storage products and services. Projects funded in this category may include innovative pilot programs, such as neighbourhood solar storage precincts. Projects which can also demonstrate positive externalities, such as reduced peak energy consumption, increased uptake of renewables and lower bills for vulnerable consumers will be considered favourably. Projects that take advantage of Victoria s advanced metering infrastructure are encouraged to apply Program Timetable New Energy Jobs Fund Round One Program Open Program launched and open Five Months Assessment and approval Seven Months Execution of Funding Agreements and announcement of successful projects Two Months Applications close Six Months Successful Applicants notified by Ministerial Letter of Offer 2018 / 2019 Completion of projects Note: This is an indicative timetable and may be subject to change. Applicants will have approximately ten weeks to apply. Assessment of applications will be concluded approximately three months after Applications close. Applicants will be given approximately one month from the date of the Ministerial Letter of Offer to finalise and execute the Funding Agreement. 2
5 3. Funding The Program will run over three annual rounds with funding of (up to) $5m available in round one. Funding amounts for rounds two and three will be determined following round one. Applications must meet the Program criteria. The Program will have funding minimum and maximum limits for individual projects ranging from $50,000 to $1 million. However, Projects under the Community category are able to apply for funding of up to $100,000 for the development of a business case or up to $1 million for project implementation and advisory services. Under exceptional circumstances, the Program has the scope to consider requests above the $1 million maximum limit to a maximum of $2 million. Such Projects would need to clearly demonstrate exceptional merit and benefit to the State to warrant consideration. Funding allocation will be based on the assessment of applications and will typically be made available to Projects with a maximum four year duration, commencing on the day the Funding Agreement is signed. Applicants must provide a cash co-contribution for all Manufacturing, Technology or Energy Storage projects. Private cash investment is mandatory for all categories except Community where it is encouraged but not mandatory. As a guide, a typical ratio for private funding to public funding for projects of this nature is 3:1. Although this is not a minimum ratio for this Program, a higher ratio will be viewed more favourably. Where appropriate and in line with the Program objectives the Program will consider various forms of cocontribution proposed by applicants. Funds will usually be paid in arrears on satisfaction of agreed project milestones. Note, in the case of community category projects, the Department will consider negotiation of reasonable milestone payments that are appropriate to the cash flow requirements of the project. 3
6 4. Eligibility To be eligible for consideration under the Program, Applicants must satisfy all of the Mandatory Eligibility Requirements below. Provision of supporting information may be required The Applicant Applications are open to a broad range of organisations and can include single entities or a consortium of Participants. However all Applications, whether single entities or a consortium, must nominate a 'Lead Organisation' to: endorse the Application; verify any commitment of funds for the Project; and be authorised to enter into a Funding Agreement with the State if successful. The Application must be approved by a duly authorised representative of the Lead Organisation. The requirements around the legal status of the Lead Organisation depend on the relevant Program category, as explained below. Individuals are not eligible to apply as a Lead Organisation under the Program. Lead Organisation requirements: Manufacturing, Technology and Energy Storage categories Under the Manufacturing, Technology and Energy Storage Program categories, the Lead Organisation must: be either: o incorporated under the Corporations Act 2001; or o an owners corporation within the meaning of the Owners Corporation Act 2006 (energy storage category only); have an Australian Business Number; be able to demonstrate that either the Lead Organisation or the Lead Organisation's parent company has at least three years operating history by way of financial reports (which shall preferably be audited); and Participants (as a part of a consortium) do not have to meet the Lead Organisation requirements above. Lead Organisation requirements: Community category Under the Community category, only not-for-profit organisations will be entitled to apply as the Lead Organisation. For this category, the Department requires Projects to be driven and managed by the community, with the community benefiting from the outcome. An organisation is only eligible to apply as a Lead Organisation under the Community category if the organisation: is a not-for-profit organisation (refer Program Frequently Asked Questions); operates in Victoria; is either: o registered in accordance with the Corporations Act 2001; o incorporated as an association under the Associations Incorporation Reform Act 2012; o incorporated as a co-operative under the Co-operatives National Law Application Act 2013; o a 'Council' within the meaning of the Local Government Act 1989; 4
7 o a committee of management incorporated under the Crown Land (Reserves) Act 1978; or o an owners corporation within the meaning of the Owners Corporation Act 2006; Note: This is not intended to be an exhaustive list. However, the Lead Organisation will need to demonstrate that it is a not-for-profit organisation as part of the Eligibility requirements under the Community category (refer Program Frequently Asked Questions). has an Australian Business Number; is able to demonstrate that either the Lead Organisation or the Lead Organisation's parent company has at least three years operating history; and is able to provide three years of financial reports (preferably audited) for the Lead Organisation or the Lead Organisation's parent company. The Department may request, during the Assessment Process, that unaudited financial reports be audited and resubmitted. Participants (as part of a consortium) do not have to meet the Lead Organisation requirements above. Businesses operating for profit are not eligible to apply under the Community category as a Lead Organisation, but may be eligible to be Participants The Project Applications are sought from Victorian organisations for projects under the four Program categories: Community; Manufacturing; Technology; and Energy Storage that meet the Program objectives and eligibility requirements. Applicants must also be able to demonstrate they can meet the following criteria: the Project must take place in Victoria*; the Project activities for which funding is sought have not previously been funded by the Commonwealth or Victorian Governments**; the technology proposed for the Project is commercially-ready new energy technology; and the Lead Organisation and any Participants must not have any unresolved issues with the Environment Protection Agency or WorkSafe Victoria. Applicants must also be able to state whether there are any actual or perceived conflict of interest issues in relation to the proposed project for the Applicant, Lead Organisation and any Participants. * Applicants may be able to purchase services, supplies and technology from overseas, provided that the expenditure on overseas sourced purchases is agreed to by the Department. **However, Applicants may apply for project activities that are a significant evolution of or development upon projects that previously obtained support from the Commonwealth or Victorian Governments. The Program will also consider funding project activities currently receiving support that meet the Program objectives and the contribute to the broader development of the new energy technology industry by: helping to establish new entrants into the Victorian market; demonstrating innovative business or financing models that can be replicated by other market participants; or addressing challenges that limit production or deployment of new energy technologies. 5
