Community Owned Renewable Energy presents the local community with significant opportunities to support, influence and benefit from renewable energy and emission reduction projects in their local area.
The Bendigo community has shown strong interest in progressing community energy projects and would benefit greatly from capacity building, partnerships and project development resources including feasibility studies, legal, technical and financial skills.
To ensure that Bendigo Community PowerHub is appropriately focused the following governance structure has been established:
- A Project Control Group to ensure that the funds provided by SV are used appropriately.
- An Advisory Group to ensure that any projects initiated by the CPH fit within the renewable energy strategic
direction of the region. Currently this group includes the local Council, industry groups, community groups, financial services provider, businesses, social housing provider and individuals
- A number of Working Groups to facilitate and progress each of the community energy projects identified
