Cities are at the center of a major transition to a more sustainable energy system. With high density comes inherent efficiencies but brings with it concurrent challenges to systems design and quality of life. This facilitated discussion will examine how new and emerging clean technologies are supporting and enabling a cleaner, more connected, and more equitable city. Teams will form around different cleantech verticals and workshop solutions around the challenges to urban growth and its impacts on energy and the environment. These include issues such as: LMI access to renewables; grid constraints and peak demand; resiliency; transportation and mobility; connectivity and data; and building efficiency and the construction industry.
