Bundaberg Action Pledge Coming Soon!
In the meantime, check out some pledges that councils can choose from:
Support community energy projects (with location and planning support) so that residents (such as renters) can band together and invest in community renewable energy projects.
Provide council resources to educate and support the uptake of renewable energy, such as by hiring an internal renewable energy support officer or establishing an independent body (such as the Moreland and Yarra Energy Foundations).
Ensure that new developments are designed to maximize public and active transport use, and are designed to support electric vehicle uptake.
Opening up unused council managed land for renewable energy, for example land fills, and road reserves.
Public lighting can use a large proportion of a city’s energy budget - roll out energy efficient lighting (particularly street lighting) across the municipality.
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.
Provide incentives (for example rate reductions) for best practice developments such as streamlined planning processes, and support for retrofitting energy efficiency measures for existing buildings.
Get city-level renewable energy or emissions reduction targets and sustainable energy policies to provide a common goal and shared expectations for local residents and businesses.
Ensure Council fleet purchases meet strict greenhouse gas emissions requirements and support the uptake of electric vehicles.
Join us in congratulating Bundaberg for joining the Cities Power Partnership!
