Clean Energy Cities
Advancing cities towards their transition to renewable energy.
Nearly 200 countries have agreed that we must transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050 to stave off the worst impacts of climate disruption and preserve a habitable planet for our children and grandchildren. This will be difficult, to be sure, but doable.
To get this done, cities need to lead the way. Some cities are already setting ambitious climate and energy goals, creating innovative partnerships with electricity providers and accelerating their local solar energy markets. Many more cities want to move in this direction, but it is relatively new territory for them, and the challenges are daunting.
Our work helps communities advance, accelerate and scale-up efforts to dramatically increasing their renewable energy use.

Solar Market Pathways: 2017
This third annual event brought together each of the 14 Solar Market Pathways projects that have been working since 2015 to develop and implement innovative approaches to accelerating the deployment of solar energy. Now, in the last year of the program, this workshop focused on maintaining momentum beyond the award period, disseminating this work to a broader audience, and inspiring replication of best practices.
Turning Energy Data into Action
Held in partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory to equip cities with tools to make data-driven decisions that will advance their clean energy strategies.

Video: City and Community Approaches to Resilient Solar
For organizations, departments, and agencies interested in developing resilient solar in their community, this video shares examples of trailblazing resilient solar projects and offers tools, resources, and lessons learned to serve as a starting point for future projects.
Webinar on Resilient Solar: Powering and Empowering Communities
This webinar, which complements the publication Resilient Solar: Powering and Empowering Communities, shares the stories of trailblazing resilient solar projects in New York City, Baltimore, and San Francisco, and connects viewers to tools, resources, and lessons learned that they can put to use in their own communities.
The sessions just got better and better. It was invaluable in helping us figure out how to work together. We clicked.–Jennifer Rimmer, Director of Economic Development
