Australia is on the cusp of one of the biggest energy system investments in our history with the roll-out of renewables, but farming communities are often being overlooked.
View our launch recording of our landmark report, Farm Powered: Opportunities for regional communities in the renewable energy boom, which lays out a plan for farming communities to participate in and benefit from the rollout of renewable energy.
You will hear from the report author, Karin Stark, followed by a discussion facilitated by Dr Fiona Davis with Karin and Professor Ross Garnaut.
Authored by Karin, together with Andy Bray and Kate Healey (RE Alliance), and Neil Gibbs (Online Power), Farm Powered identifies key policy solutions, including incentivising on-farm renewables, fixing the distribution network to make it work for farming communities, support for ‘agrivoltaics’, and ensuring farming communities can fairly share the benefits of transmission line infrastructure.
