Dear <<First Name>>,
Some progress has been made on the Renewables for All initiative. As Nicky Ison will be visiting Adelaide in the week before Easter, it is timely that I give you all an update.
The Renewables for All workshop that we held in Adelaide was part of a series held in Queensland, NSW, Victoria and ACT. The outcome of this national project is a suite of discussion papers that have been developed and submitted to the funder of this project - Energy Consumers Australia on the following topics:
In SA we also investigated Mandatory Disclosure of housing performance, star ratings and energy efficiency upgrades.
- Community Owned Renewable Energy
- Solar Gardens and virtual net metering
- Rates-Based Financing:
- Rent Based Financing
- Mini Grids and Embedded Networks
You can read a summary of the discussion papers and general update on each initiative at the Renewables for All update blog.
Nicky Ison, the project facilitator, will be talking to a range of Government and community folk about the Renewables for All project in the week 21 - 24 March.
If there is enough interest I will organise an evening talk on Tuesday 22nd in a central location so please:
- Email me if you are keen to catch up with Nicky while she is in town.
- Let me know if you are interested in a Tuesday evening talk (6pm or 7:30pm?)
- Would you also be interested in a 15 minute presentation on international examples of community energy?

Churchill Fellow - governance and community energy. From May to July 2016 I will be traveling to USA, Germany, Denmark, UK and Japan to investigate the changes in electricity markets that are being stimulated by community led energy initiatives. You can read my initial blog about this project and also a snapshot of South Australia's challenges as we reach 40% renewable energy.
