Event description

Description

Community Power Agency with support from Climate Action Network Australia is excited to be conducting a training about the Australian energy system.

The training offers essential knowledge on transitioning Australia's energy system away from fossil fuels to 100% renewable energy. It is particularly tailored to give 40 campaigners, organisers, community sector workers and community energy volunteers working on climate and the transition to clean energy a chance to better understand how the energy system works. The training aims to better equip participants to engage with decision makers, develop policy, good campaign goals and project ideas and communicate about the transition to clean energy in an accurate way.

The training will run over two half-days (not an overnight retreat as Eventbright event time function suggests - sorry):

  • 1-5pm, Thursday 30 November
  • 9am-12.30pm, Friday 1 December

The training will cover the following points and aspects:

  • How the electricity system works in Australia
  • A brief history
  • Who’s who in the energy zoo
  • An overview of energy technologies – costs and trends
  • How we get to 100% renewables
  • An introduction to key energy policies and how they work
  • Talking through key concepts, events and ideas that are in the media e.g. South Australian black-out, what is this inertia thing, pumped hydro/Snowy 2.0 is it a good idea, batteries – what’s the deal, gas prices?
