The Australia-Singapore Initiative on Low-Emissions Technologies (ASLET) for Maritime and Port Operations will support the establishment of green and digital shipping corridors between the two countries by the end of 2025.

The ASLET initiative is co-delivered by CSIRO, Australia's national science agency in collaboration with the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore and is supported by the Governments of Singapore and Australia.

The co-investment initiative supports the maritime and port sectors in Australia and Singapore to move towards a zero and near-zero emissions future while delivering bilateral economic benefit. Both Singapore and Australia shall commit up to $10 million each in their respective currencies to deliver projects under the initiative.

Informed by an independent bilateral co-design process and developed in consultation with industry stakeholders in Australia and Singapore, the Australia–Singapore Initiative on Low-Emissions Technologies for Maritime and Port Operations Report PDF (2 MB) outlines the initiatives' major challenges PDF (156 KB) to address and provide an assessment of decarbonisation solutions.

ASLET aims to accelerate demonstration and industry deployment of zero and near-zero emissions fuels and technologies in maritime and port operations. The initiative will facilitate the research, demonstration, and commercialisation of zero and near-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emission technologies, fuels and/or energy sources for use in maritime shipping and port operations.

The initiative seeks to fund solutions that make use of technology from either Australia or Singapore and brings equitable benefit to both countries through deployment project pipelines.


We expect to announce a call for grant applications in mid 2024.
