Research and development on low emission technologies for fossil fuels

The Australian Government supports continued advances in the development and deployment of low emission fossil fuel technologies through a number of funding programs and initiatives to reduce technical risk and accelerate commercialisation. The Government also participates in a number of intergovernmental organisations and forums to exchange information and expertise.
