The CEC is the peak body representing Australia’s clean energy sector including solar, wind, bioenergy, geothermal, solar hot water, marine energy and hydro. It is an industry association made up of more than 550 member companies operating in the fields of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
They provide services to members and also advocate policy to develop clean energy technologies.
Some of the ways they worth with the industry include:
- Certification of installers (every solar install has to be signed off by a CEC registered installer)
- Approval of products that can be used (inverters, panels etc)
- Host industry events such as Clean Energy Week
They also publish a range of guides including this new (2013) guide to solar for business. We’d encourage anyone looking at solar to check it out.
