Our History

Carbon Friendly Enterprises (CFE) has been delivering energy efficiency and renewable energy projects since 2007. Starting out as an energy efficient lighting and solar supplier to major wholesalers, CFE were one of the first Australian companies to import and install the most energy efficient, best quality and reliable Light Emitting Diodes (LED) lights available on the international market.

While CFE is no longer an importer of solar and LED lights we know what difference manufacturing standards make regarding longevity, quality and performance.

In 2007, one of CFE’s first major solar powered LED projects was at the Mackay Plantation Palms “Solar LED Street Lighting” project. CFE fast became an industry advisory body to various commercial, mining, industrial & government departments on the advantages of solar and LED’s, well ahead of our time.

In 2008, CFE was instrumental in the Department of Housing & Public Works (DHPW) first ever ‘LED Street Lighting Project’ resulting in LED’s becoming a part of the DHPW Standard Lighting Specification from then onwards. In 2008, CFE also delivered lighting and energy saving consultancy for the first ever Ergon Energy ‘LED Street Light Field Trials’ across Queensland, delivered the first ever BMA LED lighting upgrade and provided LED lighting for Rio Tinto field trials in WA.

CFE then started to deliver more and more energy audits and commercial-scale energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. CFE has designed, engineered, procured and constructed over 300 solar projects that deliver over 2.8 Gigawatts of electricity into the Australian NEM Grid annually.

Today, CFE now provides complete energy solutions including smarter billing, energy efficient process equipment, peak load demand shaving and mitigation, battery storage systems, power quality conditioning and renewable energy supply including solar photovoltaic, wind, pumped hydro and waste-to-energy solutions as well as turnkey solutions and full project life-cycle services.
