Business Renewables Buying Group Information Webinar

Colac Otway Shire Council is supporting the Business Renewables Buying Group and would like to invite you to the Business Renewables Buying Group – Information Webinar.

What is the Business Renewables Buying Group?

The Business Renewables Buying Group is designed to bring together a group of like-minded businesses seeking to switch to 100% renewable electricity. With the support of an external facilitator, the group will work collectively to scale up their buying power whilst cutting complexity, time, and cost associated with going 100% renewable. The Business Renewable Buying Group is open to businesses across Victoria consuming over 500mWh per annum of electricity (spending ~$100,000 per annum). Through the Business Renewables Buying Group we are striving to build and refine this model and create a repeatable and scalable group purchasing process to support more businesses to join a renewable future. 

About the webinar:

We are running this session to provide education and support for medium to large electricity consumers to transition to renewable electricity. We invite Victorian businesses interested in mapping their transition to renewable electricity along to the free webinar, you will also learn more about the Business Renewables Buying Group, the Facilitator, who the next round of the buying group will be suitable for and if it will likely work for your business.

Please register for the webinar here

When: Thursday 22 February, 11am-12pm
