Cities Powered by Renewables

May 19 2021


Growing numbers of cities are attempting to source more of their energy supply from renewables and to increase the role of local generation.

Large and megacities, with their larger revenue base, tend to have the regulatory frameworks and infrastructure necessary to scale up renewables and meet emission reduction targets.

Small and medium-sized cities (holding fewer than 1 million inhabitants) have far less visibility than megacities, even though they are home to some 2.4 billion people, or 59% of the world’s urban population.
