This Plan will focus on stationary electricity and fuel consumption associated with Bega Valley Shire Council operations.
Bega Valley Shire Council (BVSC) has developed a Clean Energy Plan, with support from the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE). This plan builds on BVSC’s existing commitment to greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) reduction (which includes a 20% by 2020 renewable energy target) and provides a framework for further improvements in BVSC’s operational energy efficiency and transition to renewable energy. This plan is a key tool for the implementation of mitigation actions to be proposed in the forthcoming BVSC Climate Resilience Strategy, which is currently under preparation.
The key objectives of the plan are to:
Provide feasible pathway options to achieve 100% renewable energy
The BVSC Clean Energy Plan will focus on stationary electricity and fuel consumption associated with BVSC operations. The assessment of BVSC’s overall GHG emissions including waste management and the identification of offsetting mechanisms to address BVSC’s emission footprint will be incorporated in BVSC’s forthcoming Climate Resilience Strategy.
