Your Local Project Team

The Bendemeer Renewable Project Team is based locally (in Tamworth and Armidale) to ensure that we can provide locally-accessible information and contact with the community. The team is committed to working with the community to realise the benefits of the project and deliver shared economic and environmental outcomes.

We believe in building long-term relationships and trust with the whole community and are committed to being part of the project journey for the long-term. This includes ensuring that our local team provide a presence to deliver clear information about the project and making it possible for the community to easily participate in the process.

Athena’s core focus in Australia is long-term, created through project development and delivery of a sustainable pipeline of projects. Athena’s aim is to deliver quality projects to meet growing energy
