    “…A billion people lived in a city with a renewable energy target or policy in 2020…and cities contribute around three-quarters of the carbon dioxide emissions from global final energy use…[Cities] have an important role to play in helping curb greenhouse gas emissions…[Adelaide, Australia’s] municipal operations have been powered entirely by renewable energy since July 2020. The city gets energy from wind and solar farms as part of a long-term commitment to reach carbon neutrality by 2025…

    …[It is also developing energy-efficient buildings…[supporting] hybrid and electric vehicles…[and investing in] energy storage technologies…[and] biogas from wastewater treatment plants…[Seoul, Republic of Korea’s] strategy to reach carbon neutrality by 2050 built around five key areas – buildings, mobility, forestry, clean energy, and waste management…[I]t has two interim goals – achieving 40% emission reduction by 2030 and 70% reduction by 2040 (compared with 2005 levels)…[and is] adding solar capacity…

    …[Cocody, Ivory Coast’s plans] to reduce carbon emissions by 70% by 2030…[despite] rising energy demand driven by rapid urban development and economic growth…[It has] a reforestation and carbon sequestration programme…[and plans for] using solar energy…[Malmö, Sweden’s] Western Harbour District has operated on 100% renewable energy since 2012,,,[and] plans to run entirely on renewables by 2030…[Cape Town, South Africa] is exploring the use of biofuels [and electric buses] in transport…[and has seen a surge] of PV panel installations …” click here for more
