Energy Futures

Energy Futures (2.7Mb) looks at energy demand and supply issues facing the city and what council’s role is in addressing these issues.

The goal of the strategy is to achieve energy security, with a focus on four strategic areas:

  • energy infrastructure and assets: ensuring energy infrastructure (ie the electricity and gas networks) can support the planned growth in the city 
  • energy supply: promoting local energy supply options, including renewable energy projects and the associated economic development and employment benefits
  • energy demand: improving the efficient use of energy and reducing greenhouse emissions and peak demand
  • community innovation and leadership: ensuring affordable access to energy for all communities and increasing community investment and involvement in local energy initiatives.
