The report presents the findings of the Local Area Energy Plan and seeks endorsement to adopt the Local Area Energy Plan by Council. The report includes the final version of the Local Area Energy Plan.
Cabinet considered the report and RESOLVED to:
1. Endorse the adoption of the Local Area Energy Plan and recommend that Council adopts the plan.
The Local Area Energy Plan represents the most comprehensive insight known about Peterborough’s current and future energy demand. Adopting the Local Area Energy Plan and developing the City Wide Climate Change Action Plan using themodelled findings and proposed projects will lead strengthen the action plan as it features reliable, evidence based projections. Adoption is also expected to add weight to the document, encouraging other local stakeholders to also use the research to inform their decarbonisation plans.
The alternative options considered were:
Do not adopt the Local Area Energy Plan. This was rejected as the plan is the strongest evidence of future energy demands of the city and is expected to be of use to inform future decarbonisation plans. Adoption will also demonstrate Council support of the research and can be used by external organisations to inform their decarbonisation plans.
