Climate Summit for Local Government

Sept 6-8, 2023 | Melbourne

Welcome to fabulous Parkes, NSW, where each year, thousands of Elvis fans flock to commemorate The King’s birthday with hundreds of tribute concerts, parades and competitions. As if building up a reputation as the country’s top location for Elvis impersonation isn’t enough, this town’s got its eyes on the bright lights: Parkes wants to go straight to number one as The King of Renewables. Parkes is already one of the biggest and earliest adopters of rooftop solar, and a founding member of the Climate Council’s Cities Power Partnership.
