A CHANGE in the weather has resulted in a location change for the Dubbo Sustainable City Expo.
The expo will be staged in the Dubbo Convention Centre and offers Dubbo and regional businesses the opportunity to benefit from expert tips to reduce their overheads.
With a number of information sessions running from 10am to 4pm, the expo will be of particular interest to businesses, according to Dubbo City Council manager environmental control Debbie Archer.
“With the price of electricity continuing to increase, many business owners are looking to reduce this ever-increasing overhead,” Ms Archer said.
“An information session held at 10am and again at 2pm will address ways in which this can be achieved.
“The session covers things such as the benefits of solar for businesses, how the system works, and how to negotiate through the process successfully.”
At 11am and 1pm, there will be a session about energy efficiency and carbon management, conducted by Carbon Training International.
“This session will cover what a low carbon economy means to your business and how you can minimise the impact,” Ms Archer said.
“It will explain how you can make the most of Dubbo’s natural gas supply, and demystify carbon management, energy efficiency, Carbon Farming Initiative, and carbon accounting.”
Ms Archer said the information sessions would provide great opportunities for local businesses of all sizes to get the facts from an industry expert.
“With more than 30 exhibitors, several information sessions and workshops, local food and kids activities, the Dubbo Sustainable City Expo is a valuable experience for the whole community,” she said.
