Victorian Clean Technology Fund (VCTF) is a venture fund which invests in and assists the commercialisation of novel clean technologies.
Clean technologies are those that provide superior commercial returns compared to incumbent technologies while simultaneously addressing significant environmental and resource issues such as greenhouse gas emissions, water scarcity and quality, waste and recycling.
Victorian Clean Technology Fund Pty Ltd is a private company established in 2003 and was formerly known as Centre for Energy and Greenhouse Technologies Pty Ltd (also known as 'CEGT'). It has been an active investor since 2003 and is an evergreen fund, in that capital from divestments is reinvested in new opportunities.
The Board of Victorian Clean Technology Fund acts as the fund's investment committee. The Directors have significant experience in both energy and early stage commercialisation. More information about the board can be found here.
