Building Futures

Building Futures is a free Council program to help larger strata buildings (40+ units) save thousands in energy and water costs, by providing support from start to finish.

Council are working with selected buildings to easily identify and implement cost-saving solutions to:

  • Reduce operating costs
  • Reduce common area energy use
  • Cut greenhouse gas emissions
  • Reduce water use
  • Improve waste management

All participating buildings will work towards a shared energy goal - reduced common property energy by 20%.

NOTE: We are currently scoping Round 3 of this program for 2020-21 - please email if you'd like to know more.

What does each building get?

  • Energy assessments
  • Costed upgrade recommendations
  • Waterfix program by Sydney Water for high water users
  • Implementation support
  • Training and networking opportunities
  • Recognition and promotion
  • Matched funding for upgrades

If you're interested in learning about electric vehicle charging in apartment buildings, this webinar is a good place to start. Hear from the experts about how charging for electric vehicles (EV) in apartment buildings can happen. Our guest speakers from Council, industry and electric vehicle peak bodies will help demystify the key information that people living in apartments will need to consider when owning an EV in the future.
