About the Cities Power


The Climate Council’s Cities Power Partnership is Australia’s largest network of local councils leading the way to a thriving, zero emissions future. We are made up of over 165 councils from across the country, representing almost 65 percent of the Australian population.

Local councils that join the partnership make five action pledges to tackle climate change. Whether it’s putting solar on the local library, switching to electric buses, or opening up old landfills for new solar farms, the possibilities are endless.

Together, Cities Power Partnership councils are making the switch to clean energy and setting up communities for a prosperous future – it’s truly inspiring stuff.

Leading the charge

From booming urban centres to small rural townships, local governments and groups of determined residents have been energy and climate trailblazers in many ways.
