David Robinson is the Project Manager of Locals Into Victoria’s Environment (LIVE) Community Power. He is planning Australia’s first community solar project to install up to 3000 solar panels on the roof of South Melbourne Market, adding to about 150 already in place.

In March 2013, the South Melbourne Market solar project passed an important milestone. The feasibility report commissioned by the City of Port Phillip and LIVE was released. David will present on the funding model process and an update on the project.

David’s 40 year career was spent in Information Technology in a range of technical, marketing, communications and sales roles. He is well known for his environmental campaigning, mainly through LIVE (Locals Into Victoria’s Environment) the group of which he is now the Convenor. During 2013 David is focussing on CORE (Community Owned Renewable Energy) projects. LIVE Community Power is the first of these projects, and he expects many more to follow in the years ahead.
