Green Ups – Community Energy Forum


WHEN: 5–10pm – 3 Nov 2015

COST: $15

With 87 per cent of Australians supporting renewable energy from rooftop solar, and a solar system sold every three minutes, but with policy signals from the current federal government that are aggressively anti-renewables, it comes as no surprise that community groups across the country are increasingly taking matters into their own hands and pursuing local, community-owned energy projects.

These community-led projects allow local groups to take control of their own energy future, reduce their carbon footprint, and reinvest their energy bill savings back into the community for its social needs.

For the November Greenups, we’ve invited a range of local Community Energy organisations to come and share their ideas and projects, all to to inspire and inform and allow you to get on board and get involved.

C4CE | ATA | Pingala | Sydney Renewable Power Company | Community Power Agency | Repower Shoalhaven | ClearSky Solar Investments | Australian Solar Council Sydney Branch | Ethinvest

We’ll also have some great talks by some of the leading figures in the Community Energy movement, and hear why this is such an exciting space for real systemic change.

Final Speaker details to to come…

Our hosts for the night, the community-run 107 Projects art-space in Redfern, will make sure we’re well watered and comfortable. Plus we’ll have food on hand care of some of the local food trucks. More info to come.
