Western region LALCs hear exciting renewable energy opportunities

20 June, 2023

The NSW Aboriginal Land Council (NSWALC) collaborated with the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), and the First Nations Clean Energy Network to deliver a workshop exploring economic opportunities in energy transition and renewable energy projects.

The workshop held in the Western region earlier this year explored potential ways Aboriginal landholders can play in addressing climate change, and the economic opportunities that might be gained from engaging in the renewable energy economy.

The videos from the workshops are available for the network and can be viewed via the links provided, or on NSWALC’s YouTube account.

The videos are:

1.     The political and economic drivers of NSW energy transition

2.     First Nations-led renewable energy in Australia and beyond

3.     What are the benefits of engaging with the renewable energy industry?

4.     What kind of Renewable Energy models will suit your community?

Two videos have been specifically designed for Far West LALCs by the UTS research team, led by Professor Heidi Norman and will be shared separately via the Zone Office.   

If you would like more information on energy transition and renewable energy projects/video resources the research the group have done, please contact the UTS team via email: caik@uts.edu.au

If LALCs have any queries or would like further information, please contact NSWALC’s Strategy & Policy Unit on 02 9689 4444 or policy@alc.org.au.
