Climate Energy Finance (CEF) is a think tank established in 2022 that works probono in the public interest on accelerating decarbonisation in line with the climate science.
We conduct research and analyses on global financial issues related to the global energy transition from fossil fuels to clean energy, as well as the implications for the Australian economy, with a key focus on the threats and opportunities for Australian investments and exports. Beyond Australia, CEF’s geographic focus is the greater Asian region as the priority destination for Australian exports. CEF also examines convergence of technology trends in power, transport, mining and industry in accelerating decarbonisation.
CEF is independent, non-partisan, works with partners in the corporate and finance sector, NGOs, government, and progressive social and climate movement organisations in Australia, and is philanthropically funded.
