YEF is leading Victoria’s first Metropolitan Community Power Hub with funding from Sustainability Victoria. The Hub aims to reduce emissions and mobilise local climate responses by building knowledge, participation and capacity of local climate community groups.
Key activity areas of the Metro Hub:
- Rooftop solar
- Energy literacy
- Community batteries
The Hub will connect councils and community climate groups in surrounding local council areas, including Yarra, Port Phillip, Darebin, Glen Eira, and others, and is planned to run until mid-2022.
Community groups include the Port Phillip Emergency Climate Action Network, Darebin Climate Action Network, Yarra Climate Action Network, Lighter Footprints, and others.
