Azility and Cities Power Partnership team up to tackle emissions.
Azility is joining forces with Cities Power Partnership, and we couldn’t be more excited.
The Cities Power Partnership is a free, national program that brings together Australian towns and cities making the switch to clean energy. The innovative program focuses on supporting and celebrating the emissions reduction successes of local councils across the country. With more than 100 local government members Australia-wide, it connects councils with shared emissions reduction goals across the pledge areas of renewable energy, energy efficiency, sustainable transport and community advocacy.
For Cities Power Partnership, Azility was a natural partner to amplify the impact of its important work. With over 120 Australian councils already on board, Azility is the most comprehensive platform available for local governments wanting to track energy and emissions reduction projects. In fact, many of Cities Power Partnership’s local government members are already Azility clients.
From 17 July 2019, Cities Power Partnership members will use Azility’s Projects Tool on my.azility.co to record and report on their energy and emission reduction projects. We’ll share this data with Cities Power Partnership to enable them to track progress on each of their members’ pledges and milestones. This can include data on:
- Project costs
- Projected financial savings
- Forecasted energy and emissions savings
- Assets that have been the subject of projects
- Greenpower or offsets purchased
Local governments and communities across Australia are leading the change by transforming our energy future and making the switch to clean energy. And for more than ten years, Azility has been right beside them helping them to achieve their vision for a better tomorrow. This partnership represents an incredible opportunity for all of us at Azility and Cities Power Partnership to support even greater outcomes for local councils, communities and the environment.
Interested in the Cities Power Partnership but not a member? The program is currently accepting new councils to join as they approach their second birthday. In addition to Azility, the Cities Power Partnership has just launched Australia’s first online forum for local government that helps councils connect and develop quicker, more effective climate solutions.
