Clean Energy Finance Corporation costing

Recently, at the request of Senator David Leyonhjelm, the Parliamentary Budget Office (PBO) costed the impact of abolishing the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC).

The PBO has revised this costing to exclude estimates beyond the forward estimates period.

“The CEFC’s lending history is too short to provide a reasonable basis for estimating the longer term budget impact of abolishing the Corporation,” Parliamentary Budget Officer, Phil Bowen said today.
