***Update: in light of the changing COVID-19 situation, we are unfortunately cancelling this event. We'll be aiming to host a similar event in Townsville when it is safe to do so.***
The energy transition underway across Australia has the potential to boost regional economies and create jobs in new, future-proof industries – and Townsville is well-placed to become Australia’s clean energy capital.
Join us for a discussion on the economic and environmental opportunities for renewable exports and renewable-powered manufacturing in Queensland.
Hear from Nicky Ison, Energy Transitions Manager at WWF and Research Associate at the Institute of Sustainable Futures, about the potential for Australia to become a renewable energy superpower – making the most of Queensland’s world-class solar resources to create a new renewable hydrogen export industry and more opportunities for advanced manufacturing.
You’ll also have the opportunity to hear from Ellen Roberts, Solar Citizens’ National Director, about the projected growth of rooftop solar, as well as the impressive number of large-scale renewable energy projects proposed around Townsville. We’ll discuss how this growth in renewable energy could drive investment, jobs and help more consumers and businesses slash their electricity bills.
