Cities are central to the energy systems of the future, built on decentralised, decarbonised and flexible sources. As consumers become producers and electricity becomes fully integrated through digital technologies, what is the role that cities can play in supporting a clean energy transition? This session will discuss how a 24/7 Carbon Free Approach can support cities in meeting their clean energy targets, by bringing together pilot cities like London, Copenhagen, Paris, and Thekwini to share insights on a carbon-free future.
C40 is a network of nearly 100 mayors of the world’s leading cities who are working to deliver the urgent action needed right now to confront the climate crisis and create a future where everyone, everywhere, can thrive. Mayors of C40 cities are committed to using a science-based and people-focused approach to help the world limit global heating to 1.5°C and build healthy, equitable and resilient communities.More info
