Distributed Renewable Energy: A pathway for resilient recovery in cities

Share

Overview

COVID-19 and worsening impacts of climate change are putting resilience high on cities’ agendas, alongside ambitious targets for GHG emissions reductions; Distributed Renewable Energy (DRE) deployment in cities will help deliver both.

The global scale of the opportunity and need for DRE is enormous, but the deployment of projects is far short of projections. Why?

Most DRE technology is mature, and finance is widely available.

Market rules and policies constrain some cities’ power to act, but, we observe that a universal barrier is the lack of city resources and know-how to shape DRE opportunities into investable propositions.

This paper sets out a project and programme development ‘kit of parts’ for cities to bring resilient DRE opportunities to market.
