Lessons from the Light$mart Programs
Secrets to business engagement & uptake of council energy efficiency initiatives
Cherry Energy Solutions is now saving forward thinking Australian businesses millions of dollar every year. In the City of Hobsons Bay alone, we have installed over 3,400 LED lights and 378 kW of solar, saving businesses more than $219,000 every year.
This white paper provides best practice for pioneering Melbourne councils to help engage local businesses in energy efficiency strategies and reduce carbon emissions. We explore the 4 keys to engagement success:
* Clear, transparent engagement processes
* Relevant and meaningful incentives
* Leveraging business networks and relationships
* Providing a trusted service endorsed by council
We can also take examples from our successful programs with the WAGA Councils, the City of Yarra, the City of Moreland, the City of Hume and City of Darebin.
