21/09/2017 – Climate Change Innovation Marketplace

Healesville CoRE attended the Climate Change Innovation Marketplace on September 21st. The day was a great success with many attendees very interested in the the long term ideas Healesville CoRE has for the town. Some of these ideas included solar thermal collectors to act as large batteries and pumped hydro at Maroondah Dam. The team were excited to receive such positive feedback, and we’re equally excited to see these grand ideas being at the forefront of current Australian research.
