City of Boroondara Action Pledge Coming Soon!
In the meantime, check out some pledges that councils can choose from:
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.
Power council operations by renewables, directly (with solar PV or wind), or by purchasing Greenpower (from electricity retailers). Set targets to increase the level of renewable power for council operations over time.
Set minimum renewable energy benchmarks for new developments, for example Denman Prospect, ACT requires every new house to install a minimum solar PV system.
Facilitate large energy users collectively tendering and purchasing renewable energy at a low cost.
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.
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.
Use strategic and statutory planning processes to promote renewable energy both at the residential, commercial and larger scale.
Incentivise the deployment of energy efficient heating and cooling technologies.
Ensure that new developments are designed to maximize public and active transport use, and are designed to support electric vehicle uptake.
