Vancouver Solar Energy for the City’s Goal to Go 100 Per Cent Green

Vancouver just became one of the latest cities to pledge commitment towards using 100 per cent renewable energy. The Guardian reported that the Canadian city targets to use only green energy for electricity, as well as transportation, and heating and cooling in 20 years.

Vancouver made the announcement during the ICLEI World Congress 2015, a triennial summit dedicated to sustainability attended by local governments around the world. It was emphasized that around 70 to 75 percent of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions on a global scale come from cities and urban areas. That’s why this decision would have a significant impact towards the efforts to avert climate change.
