The Cities Power Partnership is proud to welcome 31 new councils into the program, taking the network to over 100 councils representing almost 11 million Australians.

Councils from across Australia are joining forces to slash greenhouse gas pollution and tackle worsening climate change.

As part of the program, councils pledge five actions to tackle climate change locally, from ramping up renewable energy through to planning sustainable transport systems.

Some of the innovative projects councils taking part have developed include transitioning council fleet to electric vehicles, installing renewable energy on the council facilities that residents use daily, and even developing Australia’s largest floating solar farm.

Climate Councillor and internationally renowned climate expert Professor Tim Flannery welcomes all new councils to the partnership and commended the council for taking positive action on climate change.

“I would like to congratulate these climate change trailblazers in the Cities Power Partnership, who are shaping the way that Australian communities use and generate energy,” he said.

“There are some great clean energy and transport projects coming out of Australia’s local governments and I’m looking forward to seeing what this new round of councils will bring to the Cities Power Partnership.”
