The Clean Energy Council is an amalgamation of the Australian Wind Energy Industry Association (Auswind) and the Australian Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE). With over 400 businesses covering a quarter of Australia's total electricity production including gas, wind, hydro and bioenergy; and in the spectrum of business in 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. We maintain 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.
