Our members 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.

We are an incorporated not-for-profit association based in Melbourne and operating nationally. We are funded principally by membership fees, with additional income generated by events and activities such as industry accreditation programs.

We provide a variety of services to members but our primary role is to develop and advocate effective policy to accelerate the development and deployment of all clean energy technologies.

We also promote awareness of the industry, thought leadership and clean energy business opportunities through industry events, meetings, newsletters, directorates and the media.

We report to a nine-person board elected by our members. The board advises on strategic direction and financial management.

Our policy and advocacy work is guided by the Policy and Advocacy Committee, which includes a representative of each sponsoring member organisation and the chair of each directorate. This committee reports to the board.
