Energy Forum

Local Government Forum

The Riverina Eastern Regional Oganisation of Councils (REROC) is proud to have partnered with the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) to offer local government the opportunity to participate in a Forum to discuss opportunities for innovative responses in energy.

The Local Government Energy and Innovation Forum was held on Thursday 4 August 2016 at the International Hotel in Wagga Wagga and was an extremely successful day with 75 people attending. 

A wide variety of topics were covered during the Forum, providing participants with the opportunity to develop an understanding of how the energy market works, the schemes that are currently on offer and the innovative responses that can, and have been implemented by local government.
