Our team joined the best minds in the country working on local climate solutions at the Climate Council’s Cities Power Partnership National Summit on Wednesday 26 May.
The summit featured practical case studies from councils around the country and internationally, who are simultaneously tackling climate change and delivering savings to ratepayers via local climate and energy projects.
Dr Portia Odell, Cities Power Partnership Director, said that local governments working together around the country and with their local communities is becoming an important part of Australia’s climate solution.
“Councils across Australia are working at the cutting edge of local climate and renewable energy innovation. We’re looking forward to welcoming Port Macquarie-Hastings Council to the Cities Power Partnership National Summit and working with them on creating Australia’s clean future,” said Dr Odell.
Councils from across Australia shared ideas and heard from climate experts, including renowned economist Ross Garnaut and industry leaders on topics including setting and achieving net-zero targets, capitalising on the clean economy, investing in large-scale renewable energy.
Duncan Coulton, Group Manager of Strategy, said that he is excited about supercharging council’s work on climate change and clean energy.
“Connecting with other councils, sharing ideas and knowledge will help us to develop and accelerate practical and effective climate solutions that deliver benefits like cleaner cities and cheaper energy for our community,” he said.
