The Clean Energy Council is the peak body for the clean energy industry in Australia.
They are a not-for-profit, membership-based organisation. They represent and work with Australia’s leading renewable energy and energy storage businesses, as well as rooftop solar installers, to further the development of clean energy in Australia.
Accreditation with the Clean Energy Council recognises people who have undertaken the necessary training to design and install solar, batteries and other renewable energy systems.
CEC-accredited installers and designers aim to work to industry best practice standards, producing systems that are safe, reliable and meet customer expectations.
Installers can apply for different types of accreditation to reflect the various work and responsibilities that can be encountered in the industry.
