Future of Orbost and District Project

Drawing on experience with energy transition in the Latrobe Valley, it was agreed that the Orbost district might benefit from early intervention to facilitate transition. The Latrobe Valley Authority’s (LVA) Smart Specialisation methodology was seen to be a useful approach for developing a roadmap for the future of the Orbost district.
