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.
