Beyond Zero Emissions Info session

Beyond Zero Emissions Inc. (BZE) is a not-for-profit research and education organisation developing blueprints for the implementation of climate change solutions. Our goal is to transform Australia from a 19th century fossil fuel based economy to a 21st century renewable powered clean tech economy. Through the Zero Carbon Australia research project BZE is encouraging climate change policy that is in line with the science. By sharing this research with thousands of Australians via the Repower Australia talks program, BZE is engaging, educating and inspiring the community with real and positive solutions to climate change.

In partnership with the University of Melbourne Energy Research Institute we are undertaking the award-winning Zero Carbon Australia 2020 Project, which is putting together fully costed transition plans for getting Australia to zero emissions in ten years using commercially available technology. The ZCA project covers the 6 sectors of energy, buildings, transport, land use, industrial processes and coal exports. However the presentation will focus on the energy one, showcasing a Concentrated Solar Thermal Energy Plant.

Fresh from the West

Western Sydney CRAVE food festival
By: Andrew O’Carrigan

Lizard Log amphitheatre at the Western Sydney Parklands hosted the first CRAVE food festival in October 2012. MEfarm was in attendance to help promote our farm by selling vegetable seedlings. The customers loved our products and profits were good. It also proved a great opportunity for ME Australia to spread the word about what we do as a company. We hope CRAVE festival continues strong for next year based on such a good turn-out. Thanks must be given to the driving team at ME Australia in Suji Upasena and Des Dejrangsi for their help. Next year is already in planning and we hope to have fresh produce, seedlings and students for this.
