STATE-CITY COLLABORATION ON CLEAN ENERGY TRANSFORMATIONS
In just three short months, the 2019 Clean Energy Ministerial will bring energy ministers and sectoral leaders from the world’s largest economies to Vancouver, British Columbia.
In parallel, Renewable Cities will be hosting State-City Collaboration on Clean Energy Transformations, which takes place from May 29–30. Here, we will hold critical discussions and foster peer exchange around how local and senior government can collaborate to enable the clean energy transition.
NEW BLOG POST
To have a chance of limiting global temperature increases to 1.5°C, collaborative governance needs to be central to any greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction strategy. But what do we mean by collaborative governance? Find out by reading our latest blog post, the first in a series that supports our conference theme.
Our first batch of speakers taps talent from British Columbia, California and Oregon:
- Ken Alex, Director, Project Climate at UC Berkeley, and former Director of the California Governor’s Office of Planning and Research—In addition to leading sustainable land-use reforms in California, Ken is also the architect of the Under2 Coalition.
- Taylor Bachrach, Mayor of Smithers, B.C. and Chair of the BC Municipal Climate Leadership Council—Also a member of the Government of British Columbia Climate Advisory Council, this northern mayor can be found winter biking.
- Kim Ellis, Principal Transportation Planner, Portland Metro—Kim managed the development of Portland’s 2014 Climate Smart Strategy, which emphasized land-use policies and transport investments to reduce regional GHGs.
- Jack Kitowski, Division Chief, Mobile Source Control Division, California Air Resources Board—Jack is responsible for most of CARB’s incentive programs as well as regulations such as California’s bold new Innovative Clean Transit rule.
- Mike McKeever, Senior Advisor to Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg—Mike led the development of one of the U.S.’s most successful land use and transportation plans in Sacramento, which served as a template for California’s Sustainable Communities Planning Act.
Stay tuned, more speakers will be announced shortly.
