Your 2030 Home and Neighbourhood

Wednesday, April 17, 2024 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Location: Balwyn Park Centre, 206A Whitehorse Road, Balwyn

Big changes are coming to the way we generate, use and store energy at home. Are you 2030 ready? If our local, state and national governments are on the ball there will also be significant changes to the way our neighbourhoods look. What needs to change and who is responsible?

What should our neighbourhoods look like in 2030? Will your new EV be your home battery? What about vehicle to grid possibilities? And how will our household energy systems change? These questions and more will be answered by our expert speakers.

Should vehicle to grid or vehicle to home charging (often referred to “V2G”) be taken into consideration when purchasing your next vehicle or putting solar on your roof? Virtual power plants (“VPPs”) are coming to a neighbourhood near you – soon. Should you join in these power sharing arrangements? And by the way – what is demand management and how can it help you save money?

Electric vehicle  specialist Bryce Gaton will speak about V2G and the issues your should consider when purchasing an electric vehicle. David Coote, energy efficiency consultant, will speak about home energy systems and Liz Irvin, a senior transport planner will address key sustainable cities issues.

Join us on Wednesday 17 April at 7:30pm for your opportunity to hear about the changes that will matter to the way you live in 2030 and beyond.
