Re­new­able En­ergy ‘do-tanks’ cre­at­ing vi­sion for a sus­tain­able Auck­land

Element - - Business -

Over the last few months, the Sus­tain­able Busi­ness Net­work has been work­ing with a group of busi­nesses in­volved in re­new­able en­ergy, Auck­land Coun­cil and EECA to draw up a road map for a more sus­tain­able Auck­land. Alec Tang from ERM has fa­cil­i­tated two work­shops – or ‘do-tanks’ – to iden­tify prac­ti­cal op­tions for the short, medium and long term.

Project ideas in­clude shift­ing home heat­ing away from elec­tric­ity; pro­vid­ing en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and re­new­able en­ergy in­for­ma­tion as part of the re­source con­sent process; and set­ting up a Re­search and De­vel­op­ment Cen­tre and a Clean En­ergy In­no­va­tion Coun­cil. Plans have been put in place to take each project for­ward.
