Logan City Council 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.
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).
Electrify public transport systems (for example buses operated by council) and fleet vehicles and power these by 100% renewable energy.
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.
Ensure Council fleet purchases meet strict greenhouse gas emissions requirements and support the uptake of electric vehicles.
Promote knowledge sharing and strengthen the local community’s capacity and skills in renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport.
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.
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.
