The Clean Energy Council (CEC) is an incorporated not-for-profit industry association, and the peak body representing Australia's clean energy sector, with more than 600 member companies operating in the fields of renewable energy and energy efficiency.

The CEC's members are involved in the development or deployment of a variety of clean energy technologies such as:

  • bioenergy
  • cogeneration
  • energy efficiency
  • geothermal
  • hydro
  • solar
  • solar hot water
  • marine energy; and
  • wind.

Based in Melbourne, the CEC operates nationally, and is principally funded by membership fees. Additional income is generated by events and activities such as industry accreditation programs.

Members of the CEC receive a number of benefits, including:

  • advocacy on their behalf to governments to drive policies that accelerate development of the industry
  • invitations to member-only events organised by the CEC
  • the opportunity to participate in industry development programs
  • briefings on market and regulatory developments affecting the industry
  • access to the latest information on government policies and programs, which in many cases have been developed with input from the CEC
  • advice on the latest regulatory and market issues that will affect project development and operations; and
  • daily media updates.

While it provides a variety of services to members, the primary role of the CEC is to "develop and advocate effective policy to accelerate the development and deployment of all clean energy technologies."

The CEC also promotes awareness of the industry, thought leadership and clean energy business opportunities through industry events, meetings, newsletters, directorates and the media.
