Community groups will unite with legal and energy experts, business and government to supercharge Australia’s renewable energy future at next year’s Community Energy Congress.
Two internationally-acclaimed community energy experts will headline the February event. Denmark’s Soren Hermansen – who led the way in creating the world’s first renewable energy island – will be joined by Candace Vahlsing, who works at the White House advising on US President Barack Obama’s environmental agenda.
An increasing number of Australians are discovering the many benefits of community energy. There are more than 50 operating projects around the country, and another 80 in the works.
By owning and operating clean energy projects, such as wind farms and solar breweries, communities can save money, cut pollution, create local jobs and attract new investment.
Up to 800 people are expected to attend the Congress where successful projects will be showcased and attendees will discuss what action is required to ensure that all Australians can take advantage of the clean energy transition including low-income households, renters and indigenous communities.
All are welcome to the Community Energy Congress in Melbourne on 27-28 February 2017. Find out more and register at c4ce.net.au/congress
