Councils across the state were recently welcomed to apply for a share in the $52,000 Research and Innovation fund from the NSW Government. The Fund aims to stimulate and test new ideas for emissions reductions through an evidence-based approach.
Three councils have now been awarded a share of this funding:
- Campbelltown City Council: Creating a Spark – energy sharing communities' project
- Lake Macquarie City Council: Vehicle-to-Grid charging trial for council’s fleet vehicles
- Bathurst Regional Council: Closing the Gap on Food Waste project
To find out more details about the funded projects and how the learnings could potentially apply to your council, visit the Fund webpage here.
