Power switch: Push to plug into a sustainable energy future

When it comes to renewables, Warrnambool has some enviable natural advantages – a windswept landscape, a wild coast, and a community with an inclination to innovation. Anthea van den Bergh continues our special series Future Forecast: Spotlight on the south-west.

Unless something shifts dramatically – and soon – humanity will overshoot global ambitions to hold temperature rise to 2°C this century.

In this special series, Future Forecast: Spotlight on the South-West, University of Melbourne journalism students take a deep dive into what this means on the ground – and in the ocean – for communities along Victoria’s south-west coast. This is part of an ongoing Citizen Regional Reporting Project, with future editions focusing on other parts of the state.

This article is a multimedia feature series, co-published in part with ABC Regional Radio (Ballarat).
