North Coast Energy Forum ~ Friday, 25 November 2016 – Coffs Harbour

As we put the finishing touches on this year’s forum program, we’d like to share some highlights with you.

NCEF 2016 Theme

“The local energy revolution: Solar plus batteries plus us”: How solar and batteries are revolutionising the energy system from a centralised to a localised model in which power returns to the people. The key questions are: How can we, in the mid North Coast, play an active part in this shift? What are the opportunities for my local community, business or organisation?
Program highlights

  • Keynote talks from renewable energy guru Dr Mark Diesendorf and North Coast journalist and publisher of RenewEconomy website Giles Parkinson. Both talks will address the opportunities and challenges for the Mid North Coast from the revolutionary changes happening in the energy sector globally and nationally.
  • In-depth sessions on batteries for business, low carbon communities, low carbon councils and local energy systems. This is where we turn from big picture thinking to local action.
  • Interactive plenary sessions on current energy initiatives on the Mid North Coast and future prospects.

Also included this year: Outside the forum pavilion, a battery expo, open all day to all at no cost, featuring some of the best new tech batteries for the home and business. Plus great local wholefood catering from the renowned folk at The Happy Frog

Our next newsletter will feature more details about these great learning opportunities.
