Routes to Compliance note: Notes for Cities

The Net Zero Carbon Building Policy goal is to achieve a reduction in the energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of the built environment by reworking the way buildings are planned, designed and erected. This note can be used by Cities either an annex to the Policy or it is incorporated into the introduction (Pegasys, 2020).


Roadmap to Net Zero Carbon Buildings for 2020-2030: Policy Update

This a Roadmap that presents the key activities required by the City to achieve net zero carbon buildings by 2030. The activities highlighted in the roadmap and the corresponding approaches are pragmatic, innovative, and flexible and will be adapted to the global and local context as well as to the evolving national and legal landscape, when and if required (Pegasys, 2020).


Wheeling Discussion Paper: A Guide for Municipal Electricity Distributors

Is a third party trader of power purely a middleman, or could they be seen as aggregators that pool small generation capacity, particularly renewable power, into an economically valuable proposition? Local government (and their distribution utilities) increasingly have reason to publish wheeling tariff structures and enter into wheeling agreements with third parties. (SEA, 2020)


Municipal Energy Management Tool for Baseline Assessments

An Excel-based Municipal Energy Management Systems tool to assist municipalities with mapping their own energy consumption. The tool is developed around the DMRE’s EEDSM energy audit template. A ‘How To Guide’ accompanies the tool. (GIZ & SALGA, 2020).

A Renewable Energy Roadmap for African Cities

The aim of this guide is to assist Cities to develop a renewable energy roadmap, which incorporates renewable energy into the energy mix over time and ensures the collaboration of stakeholders and coordination of investments. It draws upon the experience of Sub-Saharan African cities in understanding energy demand and the learnings of eThekwini Municipality, which recently developed a Renewable Energy Roadmap.
