NFP Energy Network Launches
Tuesday, 13th August 2013 at 12:04 pm

A Catholic-based sustainability Not for Profit has set up an a National Energy Efficiency Not for Profit (NEEN) Network to inform and support energy efficiency awareness in the Australian Not for Profit sector.

Catholic Earthcare Australia has received funding from the Federal Government’s Energy Efficiency Information Grants Program based on its strategy around the NEEN network.

“The purpose of the NEEN Network Project is to educate, resource and connect small to medium sized, Not for Profit organisations across Australia in their efforts to reduce energy consumption, energy expenditure and ultimately their carbon footprint,” Catholic Earthcare Director Jacqui Rémond said.

“The NEEN Network Project will provide members with free access to energy efficiency information (tailored to the needs of the sector), innovative audit tools/resources to support change at an organisational level and the opportunity to join a community of their peers with whom they can share ideas, strategies and successes.

“Organisations in the Not for Profit space are often under-staffed and under-resourced.

"Our vision for the NEEN Network Project is to provide this important sector with practical, relevant assistance to transform their energy use and become more sustainable. It’s a very exciting project with the potential to have long-term benefits for the broader community as well as the Not for Profit space.”

To inform the project’s development, Catholic Earthcare Australia is currently seeking 14 pilot sites for the initial research and development phase of the NEEN Network Project to be conducted by its project partners Energetics.

The NEEN Network is targeted at small–medium sized, Not for Profit organisations in Australia. Organisations with an annual turnover in excess of $10million, or more than 200 employees, will not be eligible for pilot site selection.

The Federal Government’s Energy Efficiency Information Grants program will reach over 200,000 businesses and 70,000 community organisations through $34.3 million in funding. Forty-six projects have been funded by EEIG across the country, with more than half to be delivered at a national level.
