New avenues for local government to fund energy efficiency & renewable projects

Going beyond compliance to leadership

Finding areas to reduce costs is important for all local government because costs are rising faster than revenue streams. Electricity and carbon costs remain a big challenge in Australia. With increased pressure on local government to create efficiencies and make cost savings, the smart management of energy efficiency is viewed as one of the most successful means of achieving this.
