ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading management consulting firms specializing in energy, recently joined industry leaders as a presenter at the Smart Cities Connect Fall conference. This event provided meaningful content that explored smart city technology solutions and connected a community of decision makers to empower smart cities at all stages of growth.
Around the world, public sector leaders are pursuing goals to provide 100% of their power needs from renewable energy to meet goals for sustainability, grid reliability, energy independence, and cost reductions. During the conference, Paul Quinlan, clean tech manager at ScottMadden, discussed how North Carolina’s local governments, utilities, and the private sector plan to reach these clean energy targets.
“Cities are responsible for more than 70% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, so transitioning to renewables presents a tremendous opportunity to reduce climate impact. With decreasing costs of renewable technologies and increasing interest to reduce GHG emissions, more and more communities are pursuing 100% renewable goals,” explains Mr. Quinlan.
