Community Energy Implementation Framework

The Community Energy Implementation Framework contains 10 strategies that provide advice on political, staff and stakeholder engagement; staff and financial capacity; and embedding energy into local government plans and processes. The online guide also includes an Implementation Readiness Survey, a self evaluation tool to help communities identify areas of strength and weakness for implementation.
