Hitting the road to explain energy efficiency programs


More than 700 people from an array of government, community and private sector organisations attended a series of information sessions run around the country by the department to showcase and explain the Community Energy Efficiency Program (CEEP) and Low Income Energy Efficiency Program (LIEEP).

The roadshows, which wound up today, attracted people from non-profit organisations, city councils, local clubs, community organisations, environmental groups, state governments, and both traditional and renewable energy companies.

Designed to explain the programs to funding recipients, roadshows were held throughout February in Perth, Hobart, Canberra, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne.

Members of the department’s Energy Branch conducted the information sessions.

Organisers also wanted people living in rural and remote areas of Australia to have access to the information, so two webinars were broadcast to cater for those living outside the metropolitan capitals, and are now available on Clean Energy Future’s YouTube channel and website.

CEEP and LIEEP are programs designed to reach a broad range of concerned stakeholders across Australia.

They represent the department’s commitment to helping Australians of all stripes become smarter with their energy use.
