Event description


What are we researching?

We are currently developing a modelled system of the effect of renewable energy technology deployment in the tourist accommodation sector in Queensland. This model captures why the sector deploys renewable energy technology, and the possible ripple effects of this decision to the Australian economic, environment and society.

Why you are needed?

In order the model to predict the above effects, its accuracy is crucial. You, as an expert about renewable energy and/or the tourist accommodation sector in Queensland, plays a critical role to ensure that this model reflects the reality. Your opinions and suggestions about this model will ensure that its predictions are accurate, which in turns will benefit your future decisions.

What are the benefits of this research?

This model, when finish, can assist the tourist accommodation sector to identify opportunities and barriers to deploy renewable energy technology, broaden the renewable energy sector’s understanding about the effects of their innovations, assist the government to design their policies, and enlighten the public of the possible effects of this decision on their daily lives.

What you will be asked to do?

During this workshop, you will be asked to view a modelled system of the tourist accommodation sector and renewable energy technology. You are asked to comment on and discuss your opinion about this model with other stakeholders, and find a common ground to adjust the model if need be to best reflect the real system. You may also be asked for further clarification about your opinions towards certain factor in a model. This workshop takes approximately 2 hours between 9:30-11:30, followed by a complimentary luncheon.
