What is a wiki?

A wiki is a website that allows simple collaboration of information. It lets users add, edit, comment on and track information on the site.

What is the Embark wiki?

The Embark wiki is an online best-practice toolkit, offering information and advice on a wide range of community-owned renewable energy issues. Often, this information and advice comes from community energy pioneers and subject experts. We've developed this site specifically for Australian communities, to provide interested groups with reliable and relevant information on a range of topics that can help communities assess, plan and implement renewable energy projects.

With a wiki platform, users can collaborate on articles by writing, editing, and updating content. This means we can provide the most accurate and up-to-date information. We've got the ball rolling with a wide range of articles to help community groups start thinking about renewable energy projects.

Our vision for the site is to have a large group of collaborators who write, edit and comment on content for the site. To ensure the quality in the short term, we are limiting access to approved contributors only. Over time, we will extend access to everyone.
