C4CE is set up as a collective impact coalition, as such its role in supporting initiatives of member groups and community energy projects generally,is :
- C4CE assists member groups to communicate their initiatives and their requests for assistance. We also provide a contact point through the Secretariat which can provide information resources and refer groups to organisations that might be able to help progress projects.
- If a community energy project or initiative is a collaboration between two or more members of C4CE they may request C4CE to adopt the project as a Strategic Initiative of C4CE. Approved Strategic Initiatives receive the following benefits and support:
- Support of the Secretariat and the Strategic Initiative Sub-Committee to develop the proposal, including sector expertise, alignment with what is already happening and suggestions of appropriate organisations to collaborate.
- Support of Secretariat to help fundraise for the initiative – noting that strategic initiative leaders will have to lead the fundraising effort.
- Brand use of C4CE once approved (with the necessary disclaimer that this initiative does not necessarily represent the views of all C4CE members)
- Access to the C4CE Auspice arrangement with ATA if desirable.
