EV FAST CHARGING SET TO TAKE OFF
Transport emissions make up some 18.8% of Australia's national greenhouse gas inventory. The Goulburn Murray Climate Alliance is working to establish a fast charge electric vehicle network in the region. "Charging the Regions" showed placing infrastructure in regional areas is essential for local economies as EV uptake increases. Members have recently commenced installing public chargers at 18 sites across the Goulburn Murray, including
URBAN FORESTS OF THE GOULBURN MURRAY
In September 2021 Members commenced a project exploring opportunities to add to greening urban areas in regional and rural northeast towns with the Naturally Cooler Towns project. Members reviewed the effect of drought tolerant urban forest species suited to this region, and the challenges and opportunities available operationally and regionally. The outcomes, species lists, and recommendations can be found on our Naturally Cooler Towns project page.
COUNCILS SIGN UP FOR CORPORATE RENEWABLES
The Goulburn Murray Climate Alliance is proud to contribute to the Victorian Energy Collaboration, a local government led renewable power purchase agreement, and the largest local government greenhouse gas mitigation in Australia. VECO saw 46 councils join to use 100% renewable energy, which prevents 260,000 tonnes of CO2 entering our atmosphere every year. Our Members proudly contribute nearly 19,000 tonnes annually of this grand total. Many GMCA councils have taken a big step in getting to net zero emissions in joining this initiative, with six more of our Members set to consider also signing up.
