CitySmart projects & programs

 

CitySmart is currently delivering multi-million dollar projects and programs at local, state and federal levels to help build more sustainable communities and drive positive economic outcomes.

Our current projects include:

  • Reduce Your Juice, a gamified behaviour change program tailored for energy efficiency.
  • Live For Less, a community co-created program that empowers Brisbane residents to live better for less through smarter, sustainable living.
  • The t3 initiative that delivers sustainable upgrades for commercial buildings that are win-win for tenants and landlords.
  • Australia’s first city wide District Cooling System to provide cheaper/more efficient air conditioning for CBD buildings.
  • Energy Savvy Families Program, helping regional Queensland families learn more about their energy use and manage their electricity bills

Our past projects include:

  • A Tariff Reform Research Project that uncovered the decision-making styles and changing needs of consumer households across Australia and the implications for electricity tariff reform and time-of-use pricing.
  • Queensland Watt Savers which gave more than 300 small to medium enterprises easy-to-use tools and expertise to reduce energy consumption and related expenses.
  • EzyGreen, a residential energy reduction program, which engaged 61,000 Brisbane households to save over $10 million in annual energy costs.
