Power – it’s in our hands.

Join us at the Geelong Energy Futures Forum and hear how Geelong can transition to clean, cheap, and reliable energy, while creating new jobs and vibrant industries for our region.


Energy impacts how we work, live and play, and will be an important factor in determining the ongoing health and prosperity of our community. So, bring your ideas and your voice, and shape our community vision of Geelong’s energy future.
