(May 29) State-City Collaboration on Clean Energy Transformations Conference

Globally, cities are responsible for 75 per cent of energy consumption and an equivalent share of greenhouse gas emissions. A growing number of international bodies—including the IPCC, IEA, OECD and the Global Commission on Climate and Economy—have recognized not only the pivotal role of cities, but underscored the need for stronger collaborative governance. To successfully enable the clean energy transition, shared policy frameworks between local and senior levels of government are necessary.

The State-City Collaboration on Clean Energy Transformations Conference (May 29-30) will advance knowledge on how national and subnational governments can collaborate with cities to accelerate clean energy market transformations.

Speakers;

  • Ken Alex, Director, Project Climate at UC Berkeley, and former Director of the California Governor’s Office of Planning and Research
