“Complete with a nifty interactive map, a new analysis published by CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) details which cities are walking the talk when it comes to the full — or almost full — adaptation of renewable energy.

Forty can claim to be 100 percent powered by renewable energy. In 2015, only 40 cities used more than 70 percent clean energy, according to CDP, which makes for a 150 percent increase. This dramatic bump goes to show that our cities — as always — are acting as trailblazers for a more sustainable future.”
