Issaquah, WA

The City of Issaquah first partnered with the New Energy Cities program in early 2012 to develop a Sustainable Energy Strategy that would help the community achieve its ambitious policy goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent below their 2007 level by the year 2050. In addition to drafting this strategy, the New Energy Cities team has produced several analyses that support the City's strategic decision-making: an Energy Map for the year 2007, an Energy Map for the year 2012, and a Carbon Wedge analysis.

“My first experience with New Energy Cities was a two day workshop to identify a roadmap and action plan for developing a clean, efficient energy system over a 20 year period for the City of Edmonds WA. I found their process to be nothing short of remarkable; they presented in a professional manner and with actionable goals.”
