Our Energy Strategy

About our Energy Strategy

We are committed to protecting and enhancing the environment for us and future generations, with an objective in the Kingston Plan to tackle climate change.

Our Energy Strategy provides the framework to reduce the impact of climate change through energy management, behavioural change, energy efficiency measures and low-carbon energy generation.

The strategy looks at the three functional roles of the Council with respect to carbon dioxide emissions reduction:

  • as a community leader
  • as a planning authority and
  • as an asset holder and service provider

The strategy is delivered by us with our partners through a series of projects outlined in annual Energy Strategy Implementation Plans. Every year the priorities and projects are revised and the new implementation plan is adopted by the Place and Sustainability Committee.
