We take energy at the flick of a switch for granted. Easy access to power creates opportunities beyond belief, but at what cost? In our region, more than half of our communities’ greenhouse gas emissions come from the use of coal and gas sourced electricity. (Reference: https://snapshotclimate.com.au/)
The Northern Rivers Region has been highly reliant on others for a dependable energy supply. Now is the time to build low-emissions energy security for our local communities. We are on the cusp of a new energy future. Consumers’ focus is on energy efficiencies and solar panels on roof tops. Industry are embracing batteries, biomass trials and R&D into emerging technologies.
Sustain ENERGY draws a picture of the issues and opportunities for our region in generation, transmission and consumption of renewable stationary energy and then uses collaboration to enable the solutions.
