MP Adam Bandt presents at HASSELL
Australian Greens Deputy Leader and MP, Adam Bandt, presented opportunities under the government's Clean Energy Future Package at a forum held for industry leaders at the HASSELL Melbourne studio this morning.
He detailed several measures negotiated by the Greens under the Clean Energy Future Package, some of which commenced in July 2012.
During the session, Mr Bandt also reflected on the opportunities Australia has to capitalise on its unique climate to harness and use alternative energy sources.
He pointed to the example of Germany which has become a standout country in the shift to a low carbon economy, despite having less natural advantages to tap alternative energy than Australia.
Adam Bandt is the Federal Member of Parliament for Melbourne. He was elected in 2010 when he made history by becoming the first Greens MP elected to the House of Representatives at a general election.
The forum was hosted by HASSELL Principal John Miller and was the fifth in a series of Green Start breakfasts hosted by HASSELL. Please register your interest in attending future Green Start forums to be held in Melbourne.
