Yarra Energy Foundation

The Yarra Energy Foundation (YEF) is an independent, for-purpose organisation with a huge ambition – to achieve a zero carbon future in the City of Yarra. Established by Yarra City Council in 2010, YEF receives critical core funding support from the Council and is governed by an independent board of highly skilled and experienced professionals.

We deliver practical programs and pathways to solutions that help our community and many others across Victoria and interstate, reduce their energy use. Working with residents, businesses and community groups we develop initiatives that aim to make a carbon free future accessible for all.
