Many of our cities are changing for the better. Recent reports show that more than 100 cities around the world – from Auckland, New Zealand to Nairobi, Kenya – get at least 70% of their electricity from clean energy. Even more impressive is the fact that 40 of these municipalities are powered 100% from renewable sources. Five of these cities are in the United States, including Burlington, Vermont, which was the first to obtain all of its electricity through a combination of biomass from local wood, hydropower, wind and solar energy. In the UK, there are 84 urban centers and towns that have joined the government’s goal of 100% clean energy by 2050. These include Birmingham, Newcastle, Manchester, Glasgow and 16 districts of London. The number of cities committed to clean energy is constantly increasing, and this is a direct result of the positive motivation created by Paris Climate Agreement.
