Comments Off on Over 100 cities around the globe run mostly on renewable energy

A new report shows that over 100 cities around the world are running on predominantly clean energy . That figure is up from just 40 in 2015, and it shows that more and more cities – from Seattle, Washington to Inje, South Korea – are ditching fossil fuels and turning to renewables than ever before. According to a report from CDP , more than 100 cities across the globe get 70% or more of their energy from wind, solar, hydro and biomass. Some cities are even getting 100% of their energy from renewable sources, like Burlington, Vermont, which became the first US city to move completely to renewables. 58 other cities in the US have joined the growing #WeAreStillIn movement and pledged to transition completely to renewables.

Thanks to a shift in heavy industry moving outside of the US, more efficient lights and appliances , and more on-site power, people in the US are using less electricity. As a result, for the first time in a century, electricity demand is stagnant – and utilities are beginning to panic. Via Vox and Earther Images via Deposit Photos ( 1 , 2 )
