The New Energy Cities program is a partnership between Climate Solutions and innovative Northwest cities and counties that wish to be early adopters of the 21st Century clean energy system. The New Energy Cities program embraces four key components of an integrated energy system—very efficient and intelligent buildings, smart power grids, plug-in electric vehicles and energy storage, and renewable power sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass.
Our goal is to help the cities and counties that we work with embrace this integrated program in ways that create local jobs, spur economic development, reduce vulnerability to energy price swings, and leverage public investment with large-scale private investment.
Climate Solutions brings expertise in policy leadership, program design, finance, public engagement, and technology to help communities develop practical, comprehensive strategies customized to their unique circumstances and assets.
Our goal is to leverage the leadership of the pioneering communities we work with to provide model strategies that will translate into similar success elsewhere in the Pacific Northwest and the country.
