Community Energy Congress, 27th & 28th February Melbourne 2017

The Community Energy Congress is the premier event on Australia’s community energy calendar. It will bring together up to 800 people to strengthen this budding sector. Together we will share information, develop skills, foster new networks, celebrate success and plan for action. We at SolarShare would encourage anyone with an interest in community energy to attend.

Grassroots energy enterprises like SolarShare, which number more than 80 nation-wide, harness the power of communities to increase local energy security, bolster regional development partnerships, enhance community cohesion, reduce carbon emissions and work towards a just energy transition.

Congress 2017 aims to inspire a host of community energy advocates, from the experts who pioneered the sector, to those who are just starting their foray into the community energy space. Groups developing projects will benefit from the education and networking opportunities, while people interested in starting a project will have everything they need at their fingertips.

Community Energy Congress 2017 is also for organisations looking to partner with and support community energy, including renewable energy developers, policy makers, network companies, retailers, councils, NGOs and regulators, lawyers, financiers and more. There is something for everyone.
