About Us

A local action group supported by a team of volunteers, with an ambitious goal to create a pathway to 100% renewable energy for the Bellarine Peninsula.

100% Clean Bellarine (100CB) was born from the Barwon Heads Sustainability Group (BHSG). Our founder and former BHSG member, Karen Weaver, having held several senior roles relating to the development of renewable energy policy at the Victorian Department of Land, Water, Environment and Planning (DELWP), had a vision for a local organisation that could play a role in accelerating the pathway to renewable energy for the Bellarine Peninsula. 

Roping in local friends and acquaintances, Karen established 100CB as an incorporated association in August 2018. Our member base grows with each successful project. In 2020 we released the 100% Clean Bellarine Roadmap outlining our mission – Creating a pathway to 100% renewables for the Bellarine – and establishing an emissions baseline for the Bellarine Peninsula. 

100CB has successfully launched a series of projects aligned with this mission, including solar bulk buys, educational events and RE-lectrification projects.

Many volunteers have assisted with 100CB projects over the years. New input is always welcome, and you can join as a volunteer by emailing karen@100cleanbellarine.org.au.
