European cities are under immense pressure to decrease CO2 emissions and increase energy efficiency by 2020. In this new Urban Investment Network InfoBurst report, ULI Europe explains what cities are doing on the ground-level to fight climate change by focusing specifically on renewable energy.
Titled ‘Public-Private Partnerships in Sustainable Urban Development,’ the report features a series of case studies demonstrating that collaboration between the public and private sectors. It focuses on how Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) can help to promote sustainable urban development throughout Europe.
The report features London, Stockholm, Hamburg and Copenhagen, four cities that have taken advantage of a variety of PPP models to launch successful renewable energy systems. In different ways they reveal how the establishment of PPPs in local energy systems could benefit other European and global cities.
