Talk summary: Community power has the potential to transform the way we think about renewable energy production and management and this talk will provide a unique insight into this nascent industry. Community renewable energy projects internationally are playing a significant role in the current renewable energy revolution. In Australia, already we have two community wind farms in operation and 35 groups across the country are developing community renewables projects.
This talk will highlight inspiring case studies of community renewable energy projects across Europe and Australia and step through how they were set up and now operate and discuss the key lessons learnt. Further a framework for setting up community renewable energy projects will be outlined and key opportunities for community renewables in Australia identified.
