Ken Guthrie, Sustainable Cities Round Table – The Energy to Change, 20 May 2009

Posted in SCRT Videos, Sustainable Cities Round Tables by Virginia on June 10th, 2009

Ken Guthrie represents an initiative by Sustainability Victoria in developing a concept called Smart Energy Zones. A Smart Energy Zone aims to promote energy generation closer to where it is consumed, enabling individuals and local communities to take ownership of and manage their own energy supply. Using a combination of localised supply and demand energy solutions, communities can dramatically and cost-effectively reduce their greenhouse intensity.
