The National Energy Efficiency Network

The National Energy Efficiency Network (NEEN), an initiative of Catholic Earthcare Australia, helps faith-based and not-for-profit community organisations to enhance their energy efficiency and sustainability. It is founded on the belief that for organisations and individuals to make effective changes, they need to be able to collaborate and share wisdom and insights with each other: it’s about more than just technical solutions. This member-based network, funded by the Commonwealth's Energy Information Grant scheme, provides resources and runs learning community sessions across Australia.
