ReInvest - Official social event for Community Energy Congress 2017
Mon. 27 February 2017, 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm AEDT
ReInvest: empowering everyday Australians to participate in the clean energy revolution.
Join us from 6.30pm on Monday 27 February at Melbourne Town Hall to hear from community and renewable energy leaders on how we all can participate in the transition from an economy powered by fossil fuel to one powered by clean energy.
On the night there'll be a new renewable energy policy announcement from Victorian Greens Leader, Greg Barber and presentations from community energy experts working on the front line to clean up our energy grid.
You'll also be the first to discover the boldest plan yet to drive community ownership of large-scale solar farms.
Here's just a few of the fantastic speakers you'll hear from at ReInvest:
Greg Barber entered public life in 2002 as the first Green Mayor and has been the Victorian Greens Leader since 2010. A long-time champion of renewable energy, Greg’s insights will let you know what’s next for renewables.
Simon Corbell has spent more than 18 years as an MLA in the ACT. He has been instrumental in setting the policies that will see the ACT powered by 100% renewable energy by 2018, and is now advising the Victorian government on their renewable energy strategy.
Community Energy Leaders will take the stage including Alison Crook AO, Chair of Enova Community Energy, and Jimmy Cocking, Director of the Arid Lands Environment Centre NT and founding member of RePower Alice Springs. Our community leaders have a wealth of experience on taking action towards the transition to renewable energy in their communities.
Jeremy Leggett is a former oil executive turned social entrepreneur. After becoming concerned about climate change in the late 80s, Jeremy’s career took a U turn. He became a campaigner with Greenpeace before founding SolarCentury, the UK’s biggest solar company, and SolarAid, an international charity that combats poverty and climate change.
