STEPS TO ACCELERATE THE TRANSITION

The four pillars of our work

If you're new to the policy and advocacy work of the Clean Energy Council, read about how our work is guided by four focus areas we believe to be the most important for accelerating Australia's transition to a clean energy economy.

Decarbonising the economy

Decarbonising the economy

Being a clean energy superpower means decarbonising our energy infrastructure, removing all instances of fossil fuels and embracing clean, renewable forms of energy.
Doing renewables right

OUR COMMITTEES

Get involved as a member

Members have the opportunity to engage with and contribute their insights and expertise to the work of the Clean Energy Council through a number of committees. These committees advise the Clean Energy Council on policy and industry development issues in specific areas of the clean energy industry.

Clean Energy Council committees bring together leading stakeholders to discuss the key issues and initiatives for the clean energy industry.

As a member, you may be interested in joining a committee to: 

  • Provide technical advice and input into policy positions and industry development projects
  • Share information and network with other Clean Energy Council members
  • Raise and discuss ideas and initiatives
  • Meet with government representatives and other key stakeholders to discuss industry-specific issues

Policy and Advocacy Advisory Committee

This committee is the main policy-setting body of the Clean Energy Council. Its role is to advise the Clean Energy Council and ensure a balanced approach is applied to develop positions – taking into account all technology areas.

Distributed Energy Leadership Forum

The Distributed Energy Leadership Forum is the CEC’s key decision-making body for the distributed energy sector. It is responsible for recommending the strategy of the CEC concerning distributed energy over a two to ten-year timeframe.

Clean Energy Investment Roundtable

The Clean Energy Investment Roundtable serves as an exclusive discussion forum for CEC members with direct involvement with investment in utility-scale renewable energy projects.

Directorates

Directorates advise the Clean Energy Council on policy and industry development issues in specific areas of the clean energy industry.

Members can log in to read more about each Directorate below.

Working groups

Working groups are often set up by a Directorate to discuss a specific topic related to a technology or policy issue. These working groups provide members (and in some instances, expert non-members) with a forum to discuss issues and guide the direction of the Clean Energy Council.
