Environmentality 12 November 2104, Robyn Deed, Editor of ATA's ReNew Magazine

It has become quite obvious now that sitting around and waiting for our governments to take action on the issue of addressing climate change is not an option. The good news is that there is a lot of movement from communities and organisations across Australia who are taking things into their own hands.

This week on the show we spoke with Robyn Deed, editor of Renew Magazine about the current issue (Issue 129) which has a strong focus on Community Energy including articles ATA and community energy, Community -owned microgrids, Community solar, Energising rural communities and piece on virtual net metering.
