DESCRIPTION

With more and more of us expected to live in urban areas — 66 percent by 2050, according to the UN — cities need to transition to a more sustainable energy system, but how?

Join us for a facilitated discussion led by our managing director Pat Sapinsley and ACRE companies Fentrend, Maalka, EV-Box, and ProjectEconomics on May 3. We'll address how emerging clean technologies are supporting and enabling cleaner, more connected, and more equitable cities. We’ll break into teams around different cleantech verticals and brainstorm solutions to urban growth challenges and their impacts on energy and the environment. Issues we’ll cover include:

  • LMI access to renewables
  • Grid constraints and peak demand
  • Resiliency
  • Transportation and mobility
  • Connectivity and data
  • Building efficiency and the construction industry
