The Leaders for Geelong program is designed to expose emerging leaders to the challenges and opportunities that will shape the region, and prepare them to take the helm.
Project Aim Research Compatible Renewable Energy Sources within the G21 region Understand the Barriers standing in the way of establishing renewable energy production in the G21 region
Process Research Compatible Energies Expert Group G21 CFG Deakin University Sustainability Victoria Rural Development Victoria
Compatible Energies: Candidates for Analysis Solar Wind Tidal Geothermal Energy from Waste
Process Research Compatible Energies Research Energy Sources in Detail Develop Gap Analysis based on Research Identify Barriers via Interviews Expert Group G21 CFG Deakin University Sustainability Victoria Rural Development Victoria Industry Solar Wind Tidal Geothermal Energy from Waste
Barrier Defined A Barrier is a potentially show stopping issues, largely beyond industry sector control.
Theme SolarWindWasteGeoTidal Community Acceptance Site Location Federal Government State Government Local Government Industry / Commercial Developers Supply Chain / Distributors Economic Environmental Human Resources Technology Barrier Matrix No BarrierBarrier
Barriers Across All Energy Sources Federal Government - Funding and Grants - Policy - Carbon Emissions Trading Scheme - Renewable Energy Certificates Scheme
Barriers Across All Energy Sources Economic - Global Financial Crisis - Change in lending criteria - Very cautious approach by investors & lenders
Barriers Across Some Energy Sources State Government –Grants and funding –Costly and lengthy planning process Local Government –Possible conflict of interest Technology –Not advanced enough to be proficient in region
What could be done with these results? G21 Economic Development Executive Group handover Current Active Projects Lobbying at government and corporate level Pursue compatible renewable energy producers
