When you live and work in Canberra, you leave a smaller carbon footprint.

Canberra is a progressive city, and sustainability matters to us. We’re the first city in mainland Australia to have achieved a 100% renewable energy supply. We’ve attracted more than $2 billion in investment into sustainable energy.

Some Canberra-based achievements in this area include:

  • the largest behind the meter battery storage rollout in Australia
  • the development of the 2 Degrees renewable energy and clean tech innovation hub
  • next generation renewable hydrogen and storage technologies with Hyundai and Siemens

Around 2000MW of Australian renewable energy is managed from Canberra. We have:

  • a new $8 million centre for energy storage and batteries at ANU
  • the highest number of electric vehicle charge stations per capita

Canberra is the place to be if you’re seeking a more sustainable way to live and work.
