Partner with us

If it cuts carbon from energy, we can help. 

We partner with local governments, companies, and not-for-profits. But what we do for each is different.

Augment your in-house sustainability team, directly deliver programs and services, or boost your existing programs through our networks.


Metro Community Power Hub

YEF is leading Victoria’s first Metropolitan Community Power Hub with funding from Sustainability Victoria. The Hub aims to reduce emissions and mobilise local climate responses by building knowledge, participation and capacity of local climate community groups.

Key activity areas of the Metro Hub:

  • Rooftop solar
  • Energy literacy
  • Community batteries

The Hub will connect councils and community climate groups in surrounding local council areas, including Yarra, Port Phillip, Darebin, Glen Eira, and others, and is planned to run until mid-2022.

Community groups include the Port Phillip Emergency Climate Action Network, Darebin Climate Action Network, Yarra Climate Action Network, Lighter Footprints, and others.

Community batteries

YEF is pursuing Victoria’s first network of community batteries to make it easier for people to access 100% renewable energy. Contact us if you want to talk about partnering with us on community batteries, or read more here.

Become a local government partner

Local governments are leading the transition to zero-emission energy. YEF is assisting Councils and their communities take concrete action to reduce emissions from energy, helping them deliver climate emergency declarations and plans.

From solar bulk-buys and energy efficiency programs, it’s likely YEF has experience that would help you deliver and achieve emissions targets. 

Over the last 10 years, we’ve partnered with nearly a dozen local governments to deliver better energy to their people. We’ve facilitated the growth of solar and energy efficiency in regions such as Yarra, Hume and Strathbogie. 

YEF is the lead for Victoria’s first Metropolitan Community Power Hub, bringing together councils and community climate groups across metropolitan Melbourne.

Become a commercial partner

Through partnerships with businesses across Australia, we can help customers, staff, members or clients access better energy too.

Our independent experts can create bespoke services supporting households or businesses big and small. That could include solar and batteries, fixing buildings, or buying green power, through Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), brokering better energy deals or assisting with Environmental Upgrade Agreements.

Become a not-for-profit partner

On climate, like other global problems, we really are all in this together.

So we look to collaborate in bespoke partnerships with other not-for-profits who, like us, are on a mission towards zero-emissions energy, and on making sure no one is left behind.

Our energy expertise can contribute to simple solutions or grand plans – that we work with you to deliver in partnership.
