The Australian Energy Foundation is leading the way to an equitable zero carbon society. We accelerate the energy transition by empowering communities to take action.
Through our energy expertise, tenacity, and partnerships, we:
Demonstrate the pathways to a zero carbon society.
Influence and inspire to build understanding, investment and action.
Deliver solutions that have a positive impact.
We are practical visionaries; a national for-purpose organisation whose work benefits all Australians.
In 2000 we started as a grass roots organisation. Now we have grown to be a national organisation that works in partnership with all levels of government, the energy industry, academia and social good organisations to have a positive impact across Australia.
Our vision is that all Australians have access to the affordable and clean energy they need to be healthy, have meaningful work, maintain financial stability, connect with their community, prosper though continuous learning, and live in a thriving natural environment. It is a society where everyone uses energy from 100% renewable sources.
But currently more than 240,000 Australians are experiencing energy poverty, including over 200,000 children. Large, low income families in public and social housing in our big cities are the most exposed. Indigenous communities are also amongst the hardest hit.1
In order to achieve our vision, we work in partnership with all levels of society, from government, to business, to academia and community based organisations. In recent years we have worked with Federal organisations, agencies and government departments, such as Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS), ARENA, and the Department of Energy and Water Supply. In Victoria, we deliver projects with several State Government departments and agencies and we are building relationships with State Governments in NSW.
