Open Cities - a new national peak association is growing in size and membership.
The association represents infrastructure and service providers, cities, research organisations, and urban design advocates working to transition Australian communities to a more sustainable, resilient and affordable energy, water, digital and mobility future.
“We are working with government and industry to modernise and rethink policy, legislation, regulation and price settings to enable next-generation local utility and mobility services and solutions,” said Lisa McLean, CEO, Open Cities.
“Today more people understand the need for Next-Gen infrastructure and prosumer services than a year ago: Our message is finding its way into policy and industry thinking.”
The organisation was started in 2017 and has already swelled its membership to include OptiComm, GoGet, Flow, Clayton Utz, and Kinesis.
Lisa McLean has just returned from the World Circular Economy Forum 2018 held in Yokohama which brought together over 1,000 key thinkers and doers from around the world.
Open Cities has also been hard at work influencing the government including submissions to the Government on IPART, City of Yarra Car Share Policy, Open Energy Markets and more!
