Is a Power Partner
Partnership Action Pledge
Our power partners are committed to switching to non-polluting energy and reducing emissions in their communities.
Install renewable energy on council buildings for example childcare facilities, libraries, street lighting, recreation centres, sporting grounds, and council offices
Public lighting can use a large proportion of a city’s energy budget – roll out energy efficient lighting (particularly street lighting) across the municipality
Encourage sustainable transport use (public transport, walking and cycling) through Council transport planning and design. Substantial savings in transport energy use can be achieved by designing more compact cities with access to high quality public and active transport services and facilities.
Set city-level renewable energy or emissions reduction targets and sustainable energy policies to provide a common goal and shared expectations for local residents and businesses
Set up meetings and attend events, such as the Community Energy Congress or Ready for 100 Summit, where like-minded cities can address common concerns and learn from other’s experience.
