Congratulations to Randwick City Council in NSW who is a Round 2 member of the Cities Power Partnership!

Randwick City Council Action Pledge Coming Soon!

In the meantime, check out some pledges that councils can choose from:

Providing for adequate cycle lanes (both space and connectivity) in road design and supporting cyclists through providing parking, and end-of-ride facilities (covered, secure bike storage, showers, bicycle maintenance and incentives).

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.

Ensure Council fleet purchases meet strict greenhouse gas emissions requirements and support the uptake of electric vehicles.

For communities reliant on a local coal industry, local government can support the transition away from fossil fuels, by lobbying for state and federal support for a just transition for workers, families and the community and encouraging local economic development and opportunities based on a low carbon economy.

Public lighting can use a large proportion of a city’s energy budget - roll out energy efficient lighting (particularly street lighting) across the municipality.

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.

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.

Support community facilities accessing renewable energy through incentives, support or grants.

Set minimum renewable energy benchmarks for new developments, for example Denman Prospect, ACT requires every new house to install a minimum solar PV system.
