About the event

Across Australia, communities are coming together to pursue genuine sustainability opportunities, and few are as compelling as community energy projects.  Communities are leading the way in creating sustainable energy enterprises that increase local energy security, create regional community development opportunities, and directly act to reduce carbon emissions.

The Community Energy Congress will bring together for the first time, all the key players in the emerging Australian community energy sector.  Through the Community Energy Congress, participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Hear inspiring national and international speakers and case studies
  • Build relationships and networks with those who work in community energy in Australia, including people from mainstream energy networks, retailers and renewable energy businesses as well as government and community energy project leaders
  • Discuss how community energy can be used to promote sustainable regional development and renewable energy sector development in Australia
  • Participate in interactive sessions on renewable energy technologies and community energy business models
  • Learn more about energy regulatory and policy processes, reforms and opportunities
  • Provide input to the Community Energy Strategy for Australia including helping to identify and refine strategies to grow the community energy sector across Australia
  • Help launch and join the Coalition for Community Energy (C4CE)
  • Develop the essential skills needed to grow and sustain a community energy project
