The Coalition for Community Energy (C4CE)  is the peak body of the growing community energy sector in Australia.

It is time for the contributions of community energy to be recognised by governments and industry!

  • Our 2024 Congress brought community energy folk together around Australia – you can now access the presentations for Day 1 and Day 2.  Sign up to our eNews to discover when recordings become available.
  • Lets grow our collective voice and invite others to join us. We’ve updated our map. Please make sure your group is a member. Encourage people to join our mailing list (bottom of this page) – our newsletters will feature many useful project stories from around Australia. Please send us your news

Established in mid 2014, C4CE has now grown to more than 105 member groups across Australia who are keen to transform their communities to zero-net emissions.

C4CE’s vision is for community energy to be a significant creator and beneficiary of Australia’s renewable and sustainable energy system with community energy groups and projects initiating, developing, owning, operating, implementing and benefiting from renewable and sustainable energy.

C4CE sees community energy as being cooperatively-spirited, commercially-driven and environmentally minded. As such, community energy clearly contributes to a bigger picture of action on climate change, sustainability, social equity, community resilience and self-agency.
