ACEEE: 2021 City Clean Energy Scorecard 

Download

Overview

Read the report which analyzes the efforts of 100 major U.S. cities to make buildings and transportation more energy efficient and scale up the use of renewable energy.

The 2021 City Clean Energy Scorecard analyzes the efforts of 100 major U.S. cities to make buildings and transportation more energy efficient and scale up the use of renewable energy—and do so equitably. It provides a comprehensive national measuring stick for climate progress in cities, from the leaders to those with ample room for progress.

Moving forward, all cities can improve their scores by increasing their commitment to racial and social equity, adopting more mandatory policies designed to improve the energy performance of existing buildings, and setting and tracking progress toward stringent community-wide goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

How does your city score?
