2024 City Clean Energy Scorecard: Are Cities Living up to their Climate Commitments?

April 30, 2024 | 12:30pm - 1:30pm EDT

As the primary drivers of U.S. greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, cities are facing an urgent need to quickly take actions that will reduce their carbon footprint. Many have set ambitious targets to lower GHG emissions, increase renewable energy, electrify the buildings and transportation sectors, and to do so while advancing racial and social equity. But are cities’ leaders doing their part to meet these goals?

Join us and find out as we reveal city rankings from the 2024 City Clean Energy Scorecard. We’ll also discuss emerging trends in clean energy plans, policies, and programs across the country. Attendees will hear from officials in several leading cities about what they are already doing, and planning, to reduce energy use and GHG emissions, while simultaneously advancing racial and social equity.
