We win an inaugural WWF 2014 Conservation Innovation Award

Energise Otaki has just been awarded project category of the inaugural World Wildlife Fund (NZ) 2014 Conservation Innovation Awards.

It is tremendous news for the project and Energise Otaki is very grateful to WWF (NZ) for the recognition it has given to what we are trying to achieve.

The Public Infrastructure and Council Services focus area

The Public Infrastructure and Council Services focus area

Kapiti Coast District Council has a strong interest in clean technology as an economic development opportunity.  Underpinning this is a long term interest in sustainable development and how it can manage its services and infrastructure sustainably,  including reducing climate change impacts. 

A number of its initiatives already contribute to the Energise Otaki vision including photovoltaic installations at the swimming pool and hall, installation of LED lights, the cycleways programme, ensuring its stormwater and wastewater pumping systems are energy efficient. 

This focus area reports briefly on relevant Council projects and also provides information on how the community can get involved in Council decision-making on relevant projects.
