Byron Solar Revolution
"The Byron Solar Revolution" was a fascinating and timely Symposium held at Byron ECO Park, near the Tyagarah airstrip just off the Pacific Highway between Byron Bay and Mullumbimby, which focussed on the use of renewable-energy technology to lead the way to a greener Australia, which in the long run is softer on the earth and the wallet. The introductory sessions showcased renewable energy technologies and the featured speaker was Tim Flannery.
Renewable energy is the answer to the world's fears about Climate Change. Solutions are already available to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and Byron Eco Park has developed a series of seminars to help educate and expand awareness of solutions for a greener Australia. During this part of our solar symposium we Introduced a range of contemporary solar powered technologies in action.
Representatives from the environmental movement, solar industry and across local councils in the Northern Rivers shared their current initiatives and visions and the role of council in creating a fossil fuel free future.
