Surge Ahead: Western Australia Roundtable

23 May 2019
11:00am - 3:00pm
TSH Centre Wembley, WA
The Cities Power Partnership hosted a roundtable for local government leaders, sustainability officers and energy teams, that looked at how West Australian councils could break through the barriers to create a clean energy future for their communities, as well as attract significant investment and growth in their region.

The roundtable heard from the former Fremantle Mayor Dr Brad Pettitt, on how local governments can charge ahead with renewables, as well as the Cities Power Partnership team on other areas such as funding opportunities for participants projects.

Participants also had the chance to connect with other Cities Power Partnership councils and develop ideas for working together to strengthen their regional climate response.

The event saw the councils band together to call on the Western Australian State Government to adopt a renewable energy target of 50% by 2030 and a 100% emissions reduction target by 2050. See the media release here.
