Climate Summit for Local Government

Sept 6-8, 2023 | Melbourne

The word is out – renewable energy is a no-brainer, and Australian communities are embracing the switch to clean energy in a big way.

Meet Newcastle, the world’s busiest coal port that’s reinventing itself as a renewable energy powerhouse.

From the local bowling club members rallying to sponsor solar panels for the club’s roof, to the City of Newcastle crowned one of the first local governments in the entire country to be powered by 100% renewable energy, this community shows that there is life beyond coal for Australian regional towns.
