Vivid Sydney supports NSW Renewable Energy Sector

The world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas, Vivid Sydney, delivered a significant boost for Sydney’s tourism and hospitality industries this year, at the same time providing invaluable support to regional jobs in NSW’s renewable energy sector.

Through a joint effort by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, Sydney Opera House, the GreenPower Program managed by the NSW Department of Industry and the Banksia Foundation, the environmental impact of this year’s event was further improved as a result of much of the grid electricity used being displaced with GreenPower sourced from accredited renewable energy power stations in Western Sydney and regional NSW.
