Exploring Apollo Bay's Renewable Energy Transition

Southern Otways Sustainable’s Renewable Energy Roadmap Project (the Roadmap project) explored community interest in, and attitudes towards, a renewable energy transition for Apollo Bay. The Roadmap project was steered by a small, committed group of local volunteers over a 12 month period with key support from Colac Otway Shire and Beyond Zero Emissions.


This report sets out relevant demographic information we’ve compiled about Apollo Bay and the town’s current energy circumstances. It then details key outcomes from the community engagement and renewable energy research activities undertaken throughout the Roadmap project. Finally, the report identifies community support for a local renewable energy transition and key areas to be investigated next.


We are pleased to present this final report.
