Efficiently and effectively assess the feasibility of your project;
Help you deliver Community Owned Energy Infrastructure on the ground;
Leverage innovative financing models to deliver successful project outcomes;

WORK SAMPLE: Transition Tyalgum, A Plan for Energy Self Sufficiency, NSW
The Tyalgum community, with support from The Office of Environment and Heritage and local business Australian Radio Towers, is exploring pathways to zero emission energy supply, including the potential to become self-sufficient by generating and storing all of the town's energy requirements locally.
Energy for the People was engaged to help the community explore their energy options, and financial viability of the project. Options include ownership and management models and their regulatory implications. The work included development of a project plan for the community of Tyalgum to implement.
