The Australian Wind Alliance is re-launching as RE-Alliance, a trusted, independent organisation that sits at the intersection of regional Australian communities and the broader renewable energy industry.
After seven years building social licence for wind energy in regional Australia, RE-Alliance’s mission is to take the successful ideas they have built working with the wind industry and take it to new sectors, like solar, storage and transmission.
RE-Alliance focuses on connecting people and power, with a vision for the renewable energy transformation in Australia to deliver sustainable, long-term community benefits to regional communities.
The organisation will focus on supporting community engagement in new renewable energy zones, where all renewable energy companies must gain local acceptance and support for their projects to be successful.
“We will continue our focus on promoting wind energy, while also increasing our capacity to support all forms of renewable energy projects,” Mr Bray said.
“We intend to work closely with all renewable energy industries to deliver the kind of outcomes regional communities rightfully expect from large scale build outs of energy generation infrastructure in their regions.”
