Energy Solutions for Cities of the Future

As of: October 2018

Objective and activities

The project aims to empower cities to deploy renewable energy through a) increased knowledge on policy and regulatory frameworks, b) capacity building at municipal level, c) tools and information on technology solutions, and d) identification of synergies among cities to share best practice and replicate innovative solutions. It will empower municipalities to design and implement change in the way energy is produced, distributed, and consumed in cities, leading to sustainable urban development and mitigating GHG emissions. The project will focus on medium-sized cities, informing national and municipal level policy-makers, city planners, private energy institutions, utilities and investors and leverage existing knowledge of networks such as ICLEI, C40, and other entities.
