City Conversation 2013

Could Sydney go 100% renewable?

Renewable Cities: sun, soil, wind and waste – a master plan for change

The City of Sydney has developed a new plan that shows how it is possible to shed our reliance on coal-fired power and make the switch to 100 per cent renewable energy.

The Renewable Energy Master Plan is the most detailed technical, financial and economic assessment of renewable energy opportunities ever done for Sydney.

It shows how meeting the city’s electricity, heating and cooling demands from renewable sources, such as solar, wind and energy from waste, can reduce carbon emissions.

You can also have your say on our Renewable Energy Master Plan. For more information, click here.
