My question is for the Minister representing the Minister for Industry and Science. I believe it's Senator Watt. The Albanese government has earmarked up to $3 billion from the National Reconstruction Fund for investment in renewables and low-emissions technologies. The Clean Energy Finance Corporation's investment mandate for its $10 billion is to invest in 'renewable energy, low-emissions and energy efficiency projects and technologies'. My question is: what can the National Reconstruction Fund's $3 billion for renewables invest in that the CEFC can't already invest in?
