Victoria's Renewable Energy Action Plan supports community energy projects - but it finishes at the end of 2019.

The Surf Coast Energy Group wants to encourage more informed action within our community. That is why we are excited to announce Think Resilience- a 10 week series of workshops developed in the United States by the Post Carbon Institute.
