This review traces the changing nexus of Australia’s climate policy, energy policy and energy efficiency imperatives and its reposi-tioning of urban local governments. Focusing on New South Wales, it characterizes the ways urban local governments’ capacities and capabilities are being mobilised in light of a changing multi-level political opportunity structure around energy efficiency. The shifts it observes not only extend local governments’ role in implementing climate change responses but also engage them as partners in conceiving and operationalising new measures, suggesting new ground is being opened in the urban politics of climate governance
