State of the Industry Webinar: US Cities are Driving Demand for Renewables

October 24, 2018 | 1:00 -2:30pm ET

America’s cities are becoming significant demand drivers for renewable sector growth and investment.

America’s cities are becoming significant demand drivers for renewable sector growth and investment.

Buoyed by aggressive climate action plans and overwhelming public support for clean energy, cities have increasingly committed to high penetrations of renewables to power their municipal operations and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Today, 86 cities have pledged to transition to 100 percent renewable energy. As demand grows, America’s local leaders look to lessons learned from the C&I sector and other large off-takers as they seek to procure renewables at-scale both within and outside of city limits.

This quarterly State of the Industry webinar will showcase recent successes, as well as highlight a new multi-city effort announced in June designed to aggregate cities’ demand and jointly contract for utility-scale projects. It will also feature a quarterly Market Update from BNEF, as well as our regular policy update.
