The Clean Energy Council (CEC) has welcomed Edify Energy as its 100th corporate member in 2017.
The addition of Edify Energy brings the Clean Energy Council’s total membership to more than 450 companies across all membership levels.
According to the CEC this is an indicator of the strong growth that is currently taking place in the renewable energy sector.
“Our strong membership base allows the Clean Energy Council to continue advocating for an effective policy and market framework for clean energy while promoting the industry and its achievements,” the CEC said.
“The continuing uncertainty around energy policy in Australia means that it has never been more important to have a strong, independent body representing the interests of the renewable energy sector.”
The Clean Energy Council’s current members comprise companies from a wide range of industries, including the energy, finance, engineering, construction and legal sectors.
In 2017, 41 renewable energy projects have been committed to in Australia worth more than $8 billion.
Edify Energy is an Australian renewable energy development and investment company with six large-scale solar projects currently under development.
The projects, which are located in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria and represent more than 400 MW of installed capacity.
The Gannawarra Solar Farm in north-west Victoria will be the first large-scale solar farm to be constructed in the state.
