Australia's leap into clean energy needs a turbo boost. We need more large-scale renewables - like solar and wind farms - to meet Australia’s growing energy demand with clean, cheap energy.
To meet these demands, regional communities are being asked to play a leading role by hosting Renewable Energy Zones (REZs). And REZs will help drive energy bills and carbon emission down across the whole country.
We want to grow the voices of Regional Australians - empowering locals to advocate for a fast, fair, and sustainable energy build that benefits many generations of Australians to come.
Introducing our Renewable Powerhouse Speakers Program: together with local community groups, we will recruit, train, and activate local champions to ensure their community can harness the social, economic and environmental benefits of being part of a Renewable Energy Zone.
Our Speakers Program will help tackle the challenges posed by the concerns around REZs and more transmission, by ensuring that communities are meaningfully consulted and engaged in their future.
Can you donate towards empowering regional leaders, to help unlock the benefits of local clean energy projects for regional communities, and all Australians? We need your support for our Renewable Powerhouse Speakers Program.
Your donation will directly fund:
- Local community consultation, building on local know-how
- Educational and training workshops in regional communities
- Report backs and advocacy to all levels of government
