Sunshine Coast TAFE Carbon-neutral

A new mile stone has been achieved for sustainability in Australia after Queensland’s Sunshine Coast TAFE has become the first educational institution in Australia to be certified carbon-neutral.

Deputy Prime Minister Wayne Swan presented the certificate and plaque to the Mooloolaba TAFE College last Thursday during his visit to Queensland.

“It’s number 23 in the organisations that have joined the carbon-neutral network, but it’s in fact the first educational institution to be declared carbon-neutral,” she said.

“That’s really important because they’ve been able to achieve that and actually achieve reductions in their operating costs, while they’re still rapidly expanding and that’s a terrific achievement.”

I took an interest in the Australian energy sector close to ten years ago and since then have monitored the trends, technologies and direction of the Australian Energy Market. I was drawn to the Australian solar market in 2008 and since then have worked heavily in the field. I am partnered with national and international solar energy companies, from manufacturers of solar panel and inverter technology, online software developers that introduce tools to quote, monitor and manage solar power systems and media organisations who like myself, closely monitor the solar and renewable energy sector.
