Environmental Technology Centres (ETCs) have a key role to play in the development and diffusion of renewable energy technology into the wider community. In the Metropolitan region of Perth, Western Australia, there are a number of community education centres that provide active demonstrations of renewable energy systems as well as energy efficient principles. The Murdoch University ETC is a regional leader in this area, with a number of innovative integrated energy technologies on display, short courses offered for the general public, research and development conducted, and innovative new buildings under construction that will be climate sensible, energy efficient and powered by renewable energy. The role of the ETC in the diffusion of environmental technology has been recognised in 2000 with the award of Centre of Excellence by the Western Australian Government and its selection as the first partner centre in the world of the United Nations Environment Program - International Environmental Technology Centre based in Japan.
