Powering NZ’s future without oil
Transition Matamata is pleased to support a public presentation hosted by Matamata College next Monday evening, November 30.
The session kicks off at 6pm in the staffroom.
The subject of the 45-minute talk is renewable energy and powering New Zealand’s future without oil.
The presentation will be given by Michael Walmsley, associate professor in the School of Science and Engineering at the University of Waikato.
Dr Walmsley spent last year abroad as a Fulbright Fellow in Northern California and Hungary researching sustainable energy solutions for the USA and Europe.
He will do a similar session on sustainable energy supply for the future with college science students during the day.
Timing is excellent, with the Paris Climate Change Conference opening the same day as the presentation here in Matamata. This topic should be of particular interest to farmers and others reliant on fossil fuels in their work. organised by Transition Matamata and conducted by a Sustainability Options consultant. Simple, practical solutions are the focus of the session.
