Sydney’s switch to 100% renewable energy is a reminder toward consistency when pushing for change. After receiving pressure from the community, the city of Sydney made strides that will now save them millions of dollars, as well as 20,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. Now all operations including street lights, sports fields, buildings, and more will run on renewable energy from clean and local sources.
As we propel from a global crisis to a new future, we are shown ways in which society has been able to unite and come together. If we can agree on orders to flatten the curve, we can clearly see it is possible to achieve anything. In Sydney’s most recent feat, the use of renewable energy not only leads the way in combating climate change, but it also creates new opportunities in jobs while supporting communities.
“We are in the middle of a climate emergency. If we are to reduce emissions and grow the green power sector, all levels of government must urgently transition to renewable energy,” Lord Mayor Clover Moore said in a press release. “Cities are responsible for 70% of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, so it is critical that we take effective and evidence-based climate actions.”
While some countries and states are in the race for 5G implementation, Sydney is leading the way in innovative green power for the long haul. If we listen, nature has all we require to thrive and continue in our evolution. From food to medicine and energy to shelter, there is only abundance to be found in the arms of our planet.
According to the press release, the city of Sydney will have three sources of energy including the solar farms in Wagga Wagga and Nowra as well as the wind farm near Inverell.
“This is a landmark achievement for the city of Sydney. If organizations can follow in the city’s footsteps, a net-zero carbon future for Australia is achievable,” explains Matthew van der Linden, Flower Power CEO.
