Contents:
Cities in the renewable energy transition. Drivers for renewable energy cities. Urban policy landscape. Urban renewable energy markets. Mobilising finance and enabling business models. Citizen participation
Summary: Cities have adopted some of the most ambitious commitments for renewables globally. As substantial energy consumers and among the top contributors to carbon dioxide emissions worldwide, cities both can and must drive significant change. Renewable energy presents an opportunity for cities to make critical progress at a local level that will improve the lives, health and economic opportunities of residents and visitors alike. For the sustainable energy transition to succeed, two key elements are necessary: renewables must be deployed much more rapidly in the electricity sector, and widespread electrification is needed in all economic sectors, including the end-use sectors of transport, industry, and heating and cooling. Cities have a unique role to play: the heating and cooling sectors are local markets, and cities are crisscrossed with roads and transport systems. Perhaps most importantly, through their influence at a local level, cities can encourage their residents and other citizens to support the energy transition.
