COREM delivers renewable energy projects, with the rewards of cleaner and cheaper energy flowing directly to the community. You too can be part of these truly sustainable solutions.

COREM stands for Community-Owned Renewable Energy Mullumbimby. We are a volunteer not-for-profit association, and have been in operation since 2015. Our goal is to help transition the Byron Shire to 100% Renewables with community ownership models, and to be a light house for other communities around Australia.

We work on innovative projects that make switching to renewable energy easier, cheaper and more socially-energising. We remove obstacles that stand in the way, across many aspects of the renewable energy system.

In 2018, we were a Green Globe Award 2018 Finalist in Community Leadership.
