Alice Springs Action Pledge Coming Soon!
In the meantime, check out some pledges that councils can choose from:
Facilitate large energy users collectively tendering and purchasing renewable energy at a low cost.
Ensure that new developments are designed to maximize public and active transport use, and are designed to support electric vehicle uptake.
Ensure that the practices of local government contractors and financing such as banking, insurance, and super are aligned with council goals relating to renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport. Set appropriate criteria for council procurement.
Set minimum energy efficiency benchmarks for all planning applications.
Set up meetings and attend events, such as the Community Energy Congress or Cities Power Partnership Summit, where like-minded cities can address common concerns and learn from others’ experience.
Use strategic and statutory planning processes to promote renewable energy both at the residential, commercial and larger scale.
Implement an education and behavior change program to influence the behavior of council officers, local residents and businesses within the municipality to drive the shift to renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport.
Adopt best practice energy efficiency measures across all council buildings, and support community facilities to adopt these measures.
Promote knowledge sharing and strengthen the local community’s capacity and skills in renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport.
Support community facilities accessing renewable energy through incentives, support or grants.
Join us in congratulating Alice Springs for joining the Cities Power Partnership!
