Community Power Hub: Inspiring Innovation and transition
Finalist in the 2019 Premier's Sustainability Awards – Community category
The Community Power Hub program aims to support Victorian communities to access the skills and expertise required to develop and deliver community-based renewable energy projects, characterised by local ownership, participation and benefit sharing.
In this project, three community power hubs have combined forces to enable their residents to have greater ownership of their energy futures by co-ordinating community energy in each location, involving contribution not only from the three hosts, but many volunteers, staff and contractors.
