This short course will illustrate how communities can benefit – socially and financially – from community renewable energy projects, both at the household level, through to small and medium scale initiatives.
The course will explore how such projects can be leveraged to build community connections, community resourcefulness, employment opportunities and community resilience; all while tackling climate change.
Learners will focus on the revolution that is occurring internationally, within Australia and in particular within Victoria, as local communities take control of meeting their renewable energy needs.
Over several weeks learners will participate in four 2-hour online Zoom sessions. A fifth session will involve a 5-hour excursion to Yarra Valley Water Solar Array, SolarQuip Energy Lab, and a private home incorporating sustainable principles (all within close proximity).
4 x Saturdays and 1 x Sunday
Sat. 8, 15, 22 & 29 October and Sun. 13 November
