The NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI), with our support, are coordinating an energy forum that is suitable to all farmers including agriculturalists, horticulturists, viticulturists and NSW growers.

Take a break from the farm and explore:

  • solar pumping options and practical ways to save
  • understand electricity costs and how to manage them
  • emerging technologies that may shape the future.

Event speakers and topics:

  • A look into the future - Hydrogen and Batteries (Dr Neil Thompson and Charles Luo).
  • Electricity (grid and solar) - The grid and ways to save and solar options (Luke Christiansen). *Eligible for a 90% subsidy on later training.
  • Irrigation check up - Dave O’Donnell.
  • Industry resources -  Dairy Australia, NSW Farmers Association and Government programs.

Please RSVP for catering purposes by 24 August to Leanne Hegedus from NSW DPI on (03) 5019 8400 or via email.
