Barwon Water’s Australian-first Renewable Organics Network (RON) is a cogeneration facility supplying renewable electricity to Barwon Water’s Colac Water Reclamation Plant, and renewable hot water to several industrial customers in Colac.

The RON initiatives provide renewable energy, reduced waste and carbon emissions. It demonstrates how strong and dynamic strategic partnerships with businesses, councils and agencies can play a critical role in the success of circular economy projects, by leveraging the strengths and value of all partners to contribute to regional prosperity.
