Benefits for Members

As a member, you are part of a trailblazing group of local governments taking significant strides to a cleaner, safe future for your community.

Sharing knowledge

From hundreds of resources in our Knowledge Hub to our monthly webinars by experts, councils have access to the information and resources they need to get local climate and energy projects up and running.

Fostering collaboration

At the heart of the Cities Power Partnership is connection and sharing between participants. From nation-wide events to our online forum, councils have ample opportunity to connect and work together.

Accelerating climate initiatives

We welcome councils of all shapes and sizes – from small regional towns to large metropolitan cities. Councils make five action pledges in either renewable energy, efficiency, transport or collaborating to accelerate local climate initiatives.

Celebrating success

We’re dedicated to sharing the climate success stories of local councils and communities. As part of the Climate Council, the number one climate change media communications organisation, we’re well placed to help councils profile their renewable energy and sustainability work.
