Latest news: Finance for energy efficiency upgrades for local government
NAGA and the Energy Efficiency Council partnered to organise a workshop for local government in October 2013, to explore finance options for energy efficiency upgrades. The forum's speakers outlined the range of options for scaling up energy efficiency and renewables in councils' facilities. Presenters from government, statutory and commercial sectors highlighted a host of opportunities for tailored financing for councils, in addition to more accessible options for Energy Performance Contracting.
Presentations from our member councils Melbourne and Darebin, Victorian Government's Greener Government Buildings program, Financial Options with ANZ, and the Clean Energy Finance Corporation are available here.
