What Does the Clean Energy Council Do?
The Clean Energy Council (CEC) is an industry association made up of more than 600 member companies operating in the fields of renewable energy and energy efficiency. Based in Melbourne and operating nationally, the CEC is an incorporated not-for-profit association.
Who is in the Clean Energy Council?
The Clean Energy Council represents hundreds of businesses and stakeholders who are involved in the development or deployment of clean energy technologies such as bioenergy, cogeneration, energy efficiency, geothermal, hydro, solar, solar hot water, marine energy and wind technology.
The organisation is funded primarily by membership fees, with additional income generated by events and activities such as industry accreditation programs.
Creating Change in the Energy Industry
The Clean Energy Council provides a variety of services to members but its primary role is to develop and advocate effective policy to accelerate the development and deployment of all clean energy technologies.
The CEC also promotes awareness of the industry, thought leadership and clean energy business opportunities through industry events, meetings, newsletters, directorates and the media. The CEC reports to an 11-person board elected by its members. The board guides the organisation’s strategic direction and financial management.
The CEC’s policy and advocacy work is guided by a committee, comprising a representative from each sponsoring member organisation and the chair of each directorate. The Policy and Advocacy committee reports to the board.
