Stuff we talked about in this episode:

1) 3:22 - Imogen Jubb, National Manager of Zero Carbon Communities program with climate think tank, Beyond Zero Emissions.

We talked about alternative energy models, including community power hubs. And guess what? Sustainability Victoria recently funded the Latrobe Valley Community Power Hub, which will be hosted by the Gippsland Climate Change Network. The Hub will be the first locally-based and community owned renewable energy project of its kind in Gippsland.

2) 19:39 - Lorraine Bull, President of the Latrobe Valley Sustainability Group.

Lorraine gave us a great tip: if you’re interested in learning about cooperative community energy models, check out Frontier Impact Group’s Community Renewable Energy Financing Toolkit.

If you’re keen to source some local renewable energy manufacture and install expertise, then check out Gippsland Solar and AusGeothermal.

3) 31:40 - Anthea Merson, Project Officer with the Baw Baw Sustainability Network.

Check out home base for the Baw Baw Sustainability Network down at Fozigobble Cafe in Yarragon, learn a few sustainable tricks and grab a delicious meal while you’re at it!

And stay tuned in future episodes for more exploration of the appropriate technology movement and how it could help Gippsland in the future.
