Introducing CORENA's 27th project! Clunes Coronation Hall, in Clunes NSW!

Thanks to a very generous donation from a philanthropist organisation, our 26th project at Club Italia Geelong is now fully funded with $5k left over for our next project! It's time to head up to the beautiful Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, up to the small town of Clunes and their historic Coronation Hall.

The Clunes Coronation Hall is a community event space, built over 100 years ago, and run by local residents as a not-for-profit enterprise for the benefit of the local community.

If you'd like more information about this project, or to chip in, please visit the following link:

We're building a solar car park!

Starting next week, in the car park adjacent the Council building in Mullumbimby, will be the construction of $380,000 solar 'roof'.

It will be made up of photo-voltaic solar panels to be installed over approximately 40 parking spaces.

Why?

Well we're committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2025, as well as sourcing 100% of Council's energy needs through renewable energy by 2027.

The Solar Car Park will be a 99 kilowatt solar system which is expected to generate enough power to offset around 20-25 percent of the daily electricity use in the Administration building.

Parking will be limited over the two month construction process. People living near the Council building will notice more cars parking on the street but this will end when the car park is reopened in early September.

For more information visit www.byron.nsw.gov.au/solarcarpark

An electric bus connecting Byron, Ballina and Lismore!Not far from Byron, over in Goonellabah, is a green technology company called HRDS. It produces hybrid and electric powertrains.
At noon on Sat 8 June at our EV Forum, HRDS Product Development Manager Cliff Hall will be presenting their GREEN TRIANGLE INITIATIVE - a high frequency, electric bus route linking Lismore, Byron Bay and Ballina, using locally built electric buses.
(FYI HRDS stands for 'Hydraulic Regenerative Drive Systems'. Back in 2007, they built the world's biggest road-going electric hybrid truck, a 90-tonner.)

Renowned Climate Journalist Dahr Jamail
to speak in Byron Shire

The End of Ice: Bearing Witness and Finding Meaning in the Path of Climate Disruption.
June 26, 2019 - 7:00 – 8:30 pm

Mullumbimby Civic Memorial Hall
55 Dalley Street, Mullumbimby, NSW 2482

Cost: $15
Contact: Catherine Ingram (cathingram@gmail.com)

Convener of the Ngara Institute, Dr Richard Hil, writes: Dahr Jamail is a truly exceptional and courageous independent journalist. His unflinching commitment to exposing the causes and realities of war have rightly earned him a reputation for uncompromising reportage. He has applied the same rigor to what is a timely and deeply troubling (but ultimately life-affirming) analysis of the climate emergency. Jamail examines climate science, its implications, and the challenges that this poses to every living thing on the planet. Above all, Jamail invites us to consider how life might be lived in the face of this existential threat. The Ngara Institute is delighted to be hosting this event – an opportunity to listen to one of the most critically important voices of our time.
