As the peak body representing Australia's clean energy sector, the Clean Energy Council (CEC) works with industry and government to build a competitive and sustainable market that drives more efficient energy generation and use in homes and businesses.
Renewable Energy Target
Australia's Renewable Energy Target (RET) is a Federal Government policy designed to ensure that at least 33,000 Gigawatt-hour (GWh) of Australia's electricity comes from renewable sources by 2020.
Our policy and advocacy efforts are driven by committees (made up of directorates and working groups) that provide input into specific clean energy areas and technologies. The main policy-setting body at the Clean Energy Council is the Policy and Advocacy Advisory Committee.
We prepare and commission reports to support our policy positions and improve consumer, industry and government agency understanding of renewable technologies in Australia.
On behalf of Australia's clean energy sector, we strive to influence policy, practice and position. Central to our approach are our responses and contributions to government and agency-led inquiries, papers, reviews, determinations, plans and programs.
We have worked hard to establish and maintain a strategic relationship with the Australian Renewable Energy Agency.
