The world of energy is transforming rapidly, with cities adopting decentralized, zero carbon strategies at the local level. This publication by DNV GL examines ten of the world’s pioneering cities through the lens of the seven dimensions of the DNV GL Energy Transition Framework for Cities.
Our findings show that while significant attention has been given to the world’s mega-cities, smaller cities are proving to be nimble centers for energy innovation. This report highlights best practices related to sustainability, climate action and resilience as cities move from a fossil fuel-based energy economy towards a safer, smarter, greener future.
The report highlights best practices related to sustainability, climate action and resilience for cities facing the challenge of the energy transition and provides a framework to develop individual approaches to create a decarbonized and reliable energy supply.
