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.
