Resource Library

The National Knowledge Hub is an online library of hundreds of practical resources to support local government to ramp up renewable energy, energy efficiency, sustainable transport and collaboration.

These resources cover topics from information on grants and loans for renewable energy projects, to implementing energy efficiency projects, investing in sustainable transport and rolling out local climate change plans. There is also information on the other long running programs that exist to support local governments

Many of the resources in this library have been developed by Federal, State and local governments, community energy groups, transport groups and renewable energy agencies such as ARENA.

 

The Knowledge Hub is continually growing and being updated. Let us know if there is a resource you think should be added into the library at [email protected]
