Ever thought about the total energy bill for your town, city or community? Or what might happen if that energy supply stopped or changed or cost more? Would you have alternatives? Do cheaper alternatives exist? In fact, why rely on distant plants to provide energy? Is this efficient? What would it take to generate energy closer to where it’s used? What’s the job generating potential? Could Australia’s power grid and regulatory system cope? What’s needed to accommodate such change?
In response to the growing impact of climate change and increased pressure to identify alternatives to conventional energy sources, the City of Greater Bendigo and La Trobe University, Bendigo Campus are collaborating to bring together interested parties through a conference aimed at defining the challenge for regional Australia and describing some of the opportunities and solutions.
Sun 8 Nov – Tue 10 Nov, The Capital – Bendigo’s Performing Arts Centre
Registration closes October 30.
