Brighton Council Action Pledge Coming Soon!
In the meantime, check out some pledges that councils can choose from:
Opening up unused council managed land for renewable energy, for example land fills, and road reserves.
Install renewable energy (solar PV and battery storage) on council buildings for example childcare facilities, libraries, street lighting, recreation centres, sporting grounds, and council offices.
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.
Incentivise the deployment of energy efficient heating and cooling technologies.
Use strategic and statutory planning processes to promote renewable energy both at the residential, commercial and larger scale.
Promote knowledge sharing and strengthen the local community’s capacity and skills in renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport.
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.
Adopt best practice energy efficiency measures across all council buildings, and support community facilities to adopt these measures.
Set minimum energy efficiency benchmarks for all planning applications.
Electrify public transport systems (for example buses operated by council) and fleet vehicles and power these by 100% renewable energy.
Join us in congratulating Brighton Council for joining the Cities Power Partnership!
