With states, cities, and citizens willing to double down and move ahead with climate commitments, the global community can still count on many Americans’ willingness to act responsibly in support of global climate actions, even if their White House is not.

Intro

Energy transitions and green transformations are key focuses of our work. The gradual expansion of renewable energy sources will have considerable impacts on our energy system as we know it with regards to utilities, grid infrastructure and energy efficiency. We encourage an intensified global dialogue around these issues and provide best practice examples through policy dialogue on the international, national and local levels.
