A PUBLIC meeting in Fremantle will discuss whether Australia could be powered entirely by renewable energy.

The event will take place at Victoria Hall, on High Street, from 5pm Sunday, February 5.

It has been organised as part of the World Renewable Energy Congress which runs from February 5 to 9 at Murdoch University.

Each speaker at the Fremantle event will be given five minutes to talk about how they see the world of renewable energies changing before answering questions from the floor.

“It will be a fantastic opportunity to find out the latest innovations in renewable energy, as well as our experts’ thoughts on how to achieve a more sustainable future,” said conference organiser David Goodfield, who is from Murdoch’s School of Engineering and Information Technology.

The public meeting will be chaired by local entrepreneur Hamish Jolly, from Biogass Renewables in Jandakot, and a welcome will be provided by Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt, who still lectures in sustainability at Murdoch University.
