The Mirboo North Community Energy Hub (MNCEH) is a community-driven initiative designed to promote sustainability solutions. Its founding business case was prepared by Primaform, a partner in the Snowy River Innovation (SRI) group. The goal of this project was to increase community engagement in the MNCEH, particularly in the dairy farming and agroforestry sectors. Based on interviews and surveys, we identified successful community engagement strategies to recommend to the MNCEH. We also found that Mirboo North and district lacked a trusted source of energy information. We created a prototype website for the MNCEH to serve as an information source and community engagement tool.
