The Energy Efficiency Council is a not-for-profit membership association for businesses, universities, governments and NGOs. Founded in 2009, the Council’s members are diverse, but are united by a common cause: building a sophisticated market for energy management products and services that delivers:

  • Healthy, comfortable buildings;
  • Productive, competitive businesses; and
  • An affordable, reliable and sustainable energy system for Australia.

The Energy Efficiency Council’s vision is to make Australia a global leader in smart energy management. To this end, the Council works with its members and partners to:

  • Drive ambitious government policy by advocating for smart energy management policies and programs that deliver for all Australians;
  • Support business decision making and growth with trusted, impartial information on energy so they have confidence making the right energy management investments; and
  • Build the quality of energy management products and services by delivering training and professional development to energy management professionals across Australia.

Energy management encompasses a wide range of practices and technologies including energy efficiency, demand management or load shifting, and demand response. Smart energy management makes our buildings healthier and more comfortable, our businesses more productive, and our energy system more affordable.

As part of the Council’s strategy, the organisation aims to:

  • Increase member, partner and stakeholder engagement;
  • Focus on thought leadership;
  • Support business decision making with trusted, impartial information on energy;
  • Increase time devoted to collaborating with partners on events; and
