CONFERENCE: Reflections on the 2014 IAG Conference

Last week I attended the 2014 combined Institute of Australian Geographers and New Zealand Geographical Society conference in Melbourne. 

I gave a presentation summarising householders' motivations for installing domestic solar electricity systems, whether people are satisfied with their systems, and any potential issues with the ongoing adoption of domestic solar systems.  The paper was well received, with members of the audience interested in how perceptions have changed since systems have reduced in price, and curious about the difference in the extent to which householders trust the government or the solar energy industry. 

I hope to write a blog article about this research very soon.  In the meantime, I have written a blog post about how I perceive the study of geography and my own research within the realm of geography.  You can find my blog post here.
