C&I  | Wave | Debt Investment | Co-investment, Demonstration | View on Member website

CEFC provided a AU$20 million debt funding facility to assist in the final stage of the development and commercialisation of wave power technology, known as the CETO technology (CETO 6) in Perth. The CEFC, in conjunction with Carnegie, developed a new hybrid corporate loan/project finance financing structure tailored for this transaction and the CETO technology development. The new financing model is designed to lower the financing risks. The loan is structured to fund the development of a specific project but with security over the assets of the company including any cash refunds the company will receive under the R&D tax incentive. While technically a corporate loan, this has a high level of structural controls such as those usually found in project finance transactions. This financing structure can have wider application for other emerging energy technology projects, and be used by other financers to accelerate development of the renewable energy industry in Australia.

CEFC provided a AU$60 million senior debt facility to Moree Solar Farm for the development and construction of a solar PV power plant in Moree, New South Wales. The project is sponsored by a leading global solar development company Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV). The project has received a grant of AU$101.7 million from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA). Operating since March 2016, the 280-hectare, 56 MW (AC) project was the first in Australia to use single-axis tracking technology. Its 222,000 solar panels can tilt to face the sun as the earth rotates, enabling it to generate 30 per cent more energy than fixed position panels.

In March 2016, FRV announced it had secured a 14.5-year PPA with Origin Energy Ltd for 100 per cent of its output. CEFC will see full repayment for the finance for the project. With the introduction of new financiers to replace the CEFC debt commitment, this project is well and truly established as a high-performing commercial asset that is delivering enduring clean energy benefits.
