Community Energy Research

Over the last few years, community energy researchers, and practitioners who are interested in research, have expressed a desire to connect, share and learn from each other.  However, they have lacked an organised forum in which to do so.

To redress this, the Coalition for Community Energy (C4CE) formed a research committee in May 2020 to facilitate the establishment of a national community energy research network.  The network is a platform for community energy research sharing and collaboration.  The network is open to academics and practitioners interested in community energy research.

Over the next 12 months, the research committee will:

  • distribute a quarterly e-newsletter;
  • host seminars on research in community energy; and
  • facilitate a community energy reading group.

To join the network and receive updates about network activities please complete the sign-up form on this page.

If you would like a more active role, please express your interest in joining the research committee by emailing  You may also direct comments, questions and suggestions to this address as your input will help shape and create value in this platform.
