Australia will host its first ever Renewable Cities Australia Forum next week at the Australian Technology Park in Sydney. The forum will be held alongside the Energy Storage Conference & Exhibition and shares access to the energy storage exhibition and workshops.
The purpose of the forum itself is to bring together decision makers, policy influencers and business leaders from Australia’s urban areas with the aim of fostering dialogue around three focus areas of power generation and use – communities, buildings and transport – in order to bring about real change on the ground.
About Renewable Cities
Renewable Cities Australia developed to bring together key players in local government, business and communities from Australian cities and towns who are working towards the goal of going 100% renewable.
Although Australia is a very large country, more than 70% of people live in about 50 urban areas, with populations ranging from 25,000 in Alice Springs to just over 4 million in Sydney.
These urban areas hold the key to our renewable energy future, and will lead the way in the move to a lower carbon economy. Leaders, planners and decision makers who understand the possibilities of new energy systems are essential for this transition.
About the Australian Forum
The first Australian Renewable Cities Forum will be held on 1-2 June 2016 at Sydney’s Australian Technology Park. It will feature 25+ speakers from government, business, academia and advocacy spheres and will be opened by ACT Environment Minister Simon Corbell.
Other presenters will include representatives from Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Newcastle and Central Coast city councils, plus the ACT’s Amaroo School, consultancy Energy for the People and the UTS’ Institute for Sustainable Futures – to name just a few.
The full program can be downloaded here and registrations can be lodged here.
Anyone with a pass to the Energy Storage Conference will be able to attend all Renewable Cities Forum talks free of charge.
