Geelong Sustainability's monthly social networking event – Geelong Green Drinks – is a great way to learn about what's new and happening in our region and to connect with others working in the sustainability sector.
Theme: Community Energy - Re-powering Geelong and Beyond
Keynote Speaker: Nicky Ison, Founding Director at Community Power Agency
Our November Green Drinks will feature Nicky Ison from Community Power Agency who will share with us the story of Community Owned Renewable Energy (CORE) across Australia and the world.
Through Community Power Agency, Nicky has worked with and visited over 40 community energy projects in Australia and Europe. Nicky is also the founder of the new Coalition for Community Energy, which is working to address the barriers to the development of a wider Australian community energy sector.
Communities all around Australia are making the moving to repower their cities with renewable energy and Geelong is no different.
We will also hear from Geelong Sustainability’s CORE Geelong Project Coordinator, Dan Cowdell, who will present an update on our community solar projects. The exciting project will see community investors able to earn better than bank returns on local solar projects and solar host sites reaping all the benefits of clean, renewable solar power for zero upfront costs.
