Brighter and the Property Council at the Future Cities Summit
The Property Council, Australia’s leading advocate for all things property, held the Future Cities Summit on the 24th of May. The event was a huge success, attracting over 400 professionals involved in infrastructure and real estate to discuss the challenges facing Australia’s future cities.
Much of the discussion at the summit focused on ideas about how to structure our future cities to minimise pollution, improve energy efficiency and lower emissions, while still ensuring reliable power to Australian homes and businesses. This is where natural gas can play a large role in providing stable energy that works well with renewables.
The Hon Alan Tudge MP, Minister for Cities, Urban Infrastructure and Population shared his thoughts at the event on the issues that matter most to city residents. He argued that Australians aren’t naturally anti-growth, instead “people support managed growth”. He also talked about investment in infrastructure and collaboration between government and the private sector to build better cities and places for people.
Brighter looks forward to working with the Property Council further to talk about the importance of energy stability and security in our current and future cities.
