QREC runs events and information sessions throughout the year that are building a community of support for the industry. 

These events provide an understanding of the status of renewable energy developments throughout the state as well as regulation and policy on social licence, coexistence, health and safety, environment, planning and assessments. 

They also provide an opportunity to build relationships with a broad range of people who have a stake in the success of the industry, enabling collaboration that generates benefits for the industry and the community.
