One of the goals of our Cleveland Climate Action Plan includes reaching 100% of electricity demand from clean, renewable energy by 2050. In the environmental world, this is sweetly shortened to 100RE. To help us achieve this goal, we released Cleveland’s Clean and Equitable Energy Future report a few weeks ago, which is an action-oriented roadmap the City can follow for successful implementation of the 100% clean energy transition by 2050.Read more
The City of Cleveland was the first city in the state of Ohio to commit to powering itself with 100% clean and renewable energy sources by 2050. To help us achieve this critical goal, an action-oriented roadmap, known as Cleveland’s Clean & Equitable Energy Future, was developed.
The report includes a deep analysis of current and projected future energy use by the City of Cleveland and the community. It includes modeled scenarios which demonstrate various Clean Energy Pathways the City can take to reach its 100% renewable electricity demand target.
These pathways enable the City to achieve its goal of 100% clean energy, while also generating millions of dollars of public benefits. These stem from utility bill savings and reducing energy burden for residents, the creation of green jobs, and public health benefits for Clevelanders.
In our latest presentation, we gave a broad overview of this report and the various pathways the City could pursue to achieve its goal of 100% clean energy. If you missed it or would like to re-watch it, you can find the video here: Cleveland's Clean and Equitable Energy Future - YouTube.
