In anticipation of the launch of the Australian Government’s $100 million Community Energy Upgrades Fund grant program, A2EP has developed a series of webinars to build awareness, skills and knowledge of council staff to scope and support successful energy upgrades in local government aquatic centres. The webinars will also be relevant to councillors, consultants, equipment providers, installers and others that help make aquatic centre energy upgrades happen. The webinars were developed following a workshop convened by A2EP in October 2023 to better understand council systems, processes and understanding for securing an economical, reliable, efficient energy upgrade for their aquatic centre.
In this first webinar hosted on 23 November 2023, we featured case studies and stories on electrification projects you can learn from.
What does it take to 'electrify' an aquatic centre? This webinar drew on the trailblazing councils that have started to make electrification work. We heard case studies and experiences from our speakers:
- Hasan Mani, City of Darebin, VIC
- Amol Khapre, Wyndham City Council, VIC
- Laura Carey, Inner West Council, NSW
- David Collins - Brimbank City Council, VIC
With inputs from A2EP's Jarrod Leak, Brendan Vos and Alan Pears.
