A delegation from the Swedish regional city of Mariestad will share with Warrnambool their insights on renewable energy and cutting carbon emissions.

Mariestad Council has partnered with a Gothenburg-based company Nilsson Energy to introduce technology that stores renewable energy as hydrogen and uses hydrogen to power vehicles and heat buildings.

“I’m really looking forward to learning more about the Mariestad story,” Warrnambool Mayor Cr Tony Herbert said.

“We want Warrnambool to be carbon neutral by 2040.

“This is one of the goals in the Warrnambool 2040 plan which was developed by the community.

“It’s a huge challenge and it’s the same challenge faced by communities across the globe, including Mariestad.

“They are introducing a really innovative solution and one that could work for Warrnambool.

“This visit gives us an opportunity to learn more and share the knowledge with the community.

A special presentation of the Mariestad solution will be held at Deakin University on April 29.

Speakers include the Mayor of Mariestad Jonas Abrahamsson and the Senior Technical Director of Nilsson Energy Hans-Olof Nilsson.
