In the future, we will live and work in smart, super-efficient green buildings, powered by clean, renewable energy, linked by a power grid that optimizes energy flows to match supply and demand at lightning speeds. Our vehicles will draw from and feed the grid, running mostly on electricity instead of gasoline, and when parked and plugged in, they will offer the grid valuable battery storage capacity.
Climate Solutions has a clear vision and a practical roadmap to aid pioneering local civic and elected leaders in transforming their cities to the clean energy economy that will power America in the future and create jobs now.
Our New Energy Cities program aims to accelerate the transition to a clean, renewable, super-efficient energy system in our cities by using a comprehensive systems approach that integrates:
- Smart power grids
- Green intelligent buildings
- Plug-in electric vehicles and energy storage
- Renewable power sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass
Pioneering Cities Will Lead the Way
Pioneering cities will lead the country in making the transformation to the clean energy future. The New Energy Cities project focuses on cities in the Northwest that are best positioned and most prepared to provide groundbreaking leadership to fundamentally transform the way we power our communities.
