Tweed Shire Council is hoping experts in the community will come forward to help shape the region’s future approach to renewable energy.
The council is inviting people with qualifications or experience in the provision of renewable energy to nominate to be part of a Renewable Energy Think Tank on Tuesday 24 July.
Five nominees will be selected to participate at the Think Tank at the Murwillumbah Civic Centre from 3pm to 6pm.
Think Tank participants are asked to come armed with ideas and concepts for the forum to discuss.
Council hopes the participants will identify viable future opportunities for renewable-energy projects in the Tweed Shire.
Tweed’s director of community and natural resources, David Oxenham, said ‘Think Tank discussions will explore renewable-energy options based on the natural and resource features of Tweed Shire, state-of-the-art technology and practices, and the expertise of participants’.
‘Although Council is not an energy provider, it can play an advocacy role and the options identified by the Think Tank could be adopted by Council for future consideration and advocacy as opportunities arise,’ he said.
