Council progress on carbon reduction

Solar panels on Noosa Library

Annie Nolan is Noosa Council’s Carbon Reduction Officer. For the past 4 years Annie has been implementing Noosa Council’s Strategy to achieve net zero emissions for Council by 2026. During this time Ms Nolan has project managed the implementation of capital projects including the installation of over 600kW of solar PV across Council buildings and the implementation of many energy efficiency projects such as HVAC and lighting improvements.

“As well as the environmental benefits, reducing energy makes good business sense because it saves the organisation money,” she said.

At the next Friday Environment Forum on June 25, Annie will discuss the initiatives within Council to assist Noosa become a net zero emissions community by 2026. She will also discuss the Climate Change Response Plan where she was one of the main authors.

Annie not only holds a degree in Environmental Science and a Master’s Degree in Sustainability, but she has a great wealth of practical experience.
