“Beyond Zero Emissions Presentation”
This is an opportunity for our community to hear about Australia’s pathway to 100% renewable, sustainable energy explained in layman’s language.
Dr Helen Fairweather, a Senior Lecturer with the University of Sunshine Coast, will be outlining Beyond Zero Emissions award-winning research at the next Permaculture Noosa meeting, to be held on Thursday 19th January 2012.
Beyond Zero Emissions is a not-for profit group of researchers and engineers who volunteer their time to produce a plan for replacing traditional power generation with 100% renewable energy.
Their Stationary Energy Plan, produced in partnership with the University of Melbourne Energy Institute, has been endorsed by leading Australians, such as Professor Tim Flannery, Sir Gustav Nossal and Robin Batterham, AO. At the National Environmental Awards, this plan won the 2010 Mercedes-Benz award for Environmental Research, and BZE founder, Matthew Wright, was named Young Environmentalist of the year.
The Stationery Energy Plan is a blueprint for a future free from climate-changing fossil fuels and environment damaging coal seam gas. The plan is fully costed, uses existing commercially available technology and will provide baseload power. Come along and hear about the ideas which are already changing other economies, such as Spain and China.
“We believe that people want information about how Australia can act in a timely and effective way to help arrest climate change,” says James Bramwell, Director from the independent research group, Beyond Zero Emissions. “Moreover there are some exciting opportunities for Australia to develop new industries and create new job opportunities in renewable power generation.”
