Making Yorke and Mid North Low Carbon Investment Ready: Have Your Say About Renewable Energy Development

The Yorke and Mid North Regional Alliance together with University College London Australia are collaborating on a project to determine how best to prepare the region for renewable energy and other low carbon technologies. To achieve this goal they need your help to better understand the opinions of the people living in the region. 

The project being delivered by UCL will identify and assess the regional opportunities for new sustainable industries by:

  • Conducting an analysis of geographic/environmental, social and economic features and factors in the region to support development of an integrated strategy for renewable energy development in the region;
  • Determining the most feasible economic opportunities for the region for low carbon technologies and new industry emergence;
  • Assessing regional opportunities and potential impacts of supporting and capitalising on climate change mitigation measures and strategies. 

As part of the project, there has been a community preferences survey to better understand the opinions of the people living in the region. A wider investment survey has also been undertaken.  The results of the community preferences survey can be found on pages 14-20 in the Phase 1 Report. The results of the investment survey will be made publicly available through the Regional Development Australia Yorke and Mid North website shortly.

To build on the findings of the surveys, community members are invited to attend a Public Workshop at either Snowtown on 4th June, Ardrossan on 10th June or Booleroo Centre on 1st July. The workshops will provide an opportunity to participate in evaluating potential options and developing a strategy to guide the region in attracting and developing renewable energy and other low carbon technologies.

"These workshops are a chance for local people to have a say about future renewable energy development in their area - this has the potential to influence new job creation, policies around development and type of technologies and how we manage our power into the future. I encourage Community members, Local Progress Associations, landholders and local business people to attend," said Kelly-Anne Saffin, CEO of Regional Development Australia Yorke and Mid North.
