On Tuesday 24 October we gathered at St Ambrose Community Centre in Brunswick for our Annual General Meeting. Members, friends, Board and staff members mingled in the courtyard and enjoyed tacos from the Taco Truck and a drink to celebrate our achievements over the last year.
MEFL’s Chair Monique Conheady and CEO Alison Rowe reported on MEFL’s achievements in 2016-17, the big changes we’ve been through in that time and how what we’re doing fits in with broader changes in the energy ‘landscape’.
Following the AGM formalities, our special guest speaker gave a presentation. This year it was Jo Witters from the Office of Innovation at the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO).
Jo talked about energy efficiency, community energy and decentralisation of the energy market and answered many questions from those attending.
As always it was a great opportunity to network, learn and celebrate.
