Founder Jeff Barlow

Jeff is the founder of Healesville Community Renewable Energy and is convinced that alone there is little we can do to address the climate emergency, but when a community has leadership to bring people together, to engage with the issues, to guide and support and help find solutions, suddenly we begin to see how it is that big things can grow from small beginnings. Jeff worked tirelessly from 2017 to 2022 to establish the organisation and provide that much needed local leadership.

Jeff wants his grandchildren and great grandchildren to inherit a planet that is habitable by human beings and he feels a deep need to be engaged personally in the process of communities transitioning rapidly to sustainable living.
