Masterclass series: Learn how to buy renewable electricity for your business

Discover your best options for purchasing GreenPower and what you need to know about power purchase agreements.

Are you keen to see your business switch to renewable electricity?

Or have you looked into buying renewable electricity but got a little confused?

Switching to renewable electricity is often the most impactful thing you can do for the environment.

It’s a big step in your journey to net zero emissions.

But it can be tricky.

If you’re a proactive leader and keen to learn from experts, check out these interactive workshops we're hosting with the Business Renewables Centre Australia.

They're suitable for small to medium businesses buying between 500,000 kWh and 50 GWh of electricity per year.

If you typically spend more than $150,000 a year on electricity, they’re ideal for you. (If you're spending less than this you might find this handy guide to GreenPower and LGCs useful.)

The workshops are tailored to:

  • business owners
  • energy procurement managers
  • sustainability managers
  • marketing and communications managers
  • accounts and finance managers
  • contracts and legal managers
  • CFOs, CEOs and managing directors.

Spaces are limited and the topic is popular, so we recommend claiming your free spot as soon as possible.
