Clean Energy Council

The Clean Energy Council is an amalgamation of the Australian Wind Energy Industry Association (Auswind) and the Australian Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE).  Council members comprise over 400 businesses covering a quarter of Australia’s total electricity production including gas, wind, hydro and bioenergy, together with the low-emission energy and energy efficiency sectors, including solar PV, solar hot water, biomass, geothermal and cogeneration.  The clean energy sector is focused on tackling climate change in Australia.  The Council maintains that, as stationary energy is responsible for 50% of Australia’s emissions, with electricity production by far the largest contributor, any responsible remedy to climate change must tackle Australia’s electricity mix.” Energy Futures Australia website
