The Network acts as an innovation hub, promoting best practice standards and principles that companies should adopt and investors should require before committing capital to a clean energy project. We also offer advice and training to First Nations organisations to manage clean energy projects and businesses.
We are building genuine and productive partnerships with industry, investors and government to design projects that ensure benefits are shared and communities are engaged in their planning and design. Securing local, secure jobs is key.
Our partnership with the Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research at the Australian National University has already led to a Guide to Clean Energy Agreement Making on First Nations land (see our Resources page). Further research on large scale renewables projects is underway.
