There are many policy and regulatory barriers to community energy. Additionally, there is significant international precedent for governments to actively encourage community energy projects and the development of a community energy sector.

C4CE advocates state and federal goverments and industry to
• Address the barriers to community energy caused by policy or regulation,
• Address market barriers that while not always caused by policy or regulation can be fixed by policy or regulation, and
• Proactively incentivise and support the creation of community energy projects.

To create a vibrant community energy sector, C4CE has undertaken a number of advocacy campaigns and has been successful in having state governments in NSW and Victoria to have dedicated community energy programs and grants.
