What does AEF do for the community?

We work towards our vision of an equitable zero carbon society by accelerating the energy transition through empowering communities to create lasting change.

AEF delivers significant carbon savings through our programs and the increasingly rapid uptake of renewable energy across Australia. We deliver both energy and financial savings for households, businesses and community organisations. People’s homes, businesses, schools and community facilities are more comfortable and efficient, supporting the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities, particularly the most vulnerable in our society. This provides us with measurable health and social impacts throughout society.
