Urban Energy Forum 2020
100%, ACCELERATED: HOW CITIES ARE DRIVING THE ENERGY TRANSITION
The Urban Energy Forum 2020 focuses on one of the most important grassroots movements to emerge in the 21st century – cities and regions accelerating the energy transition by establishing their own ambitious goals to reach 100% renewable energy. While countries around the world continue on a path of relative inaction, more and more cities are taking the fight against climate change into their own hands. The climate leadership emanating from our urban centres gives hope to the tall task of a rapid energy transition. This year’s Urban Energy Forum will capture the ambitions, solutions and success stories of cities on the cutting edge of the global energy transition, and open a dialogue on how they can be scaled at a global level.
This year’s event will bring together a diverse mix of industry, political, and scientific leaders from all over the world who are working to bring our cities to 100% renewable energy. The Urban Energy Forum is proud to provide a platform for our speakers to share their ambitions, solutions, and success stories, while placing a focus on networking and the sharing of ideas. The Urban Energy Forum is an official side event of the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue, one of the preeminent global events on the energy transition and the centrepiece of the Berlin Energy Week.
