UPDATE: Read the full report from the symposium here.
Sustainability Solutions Group is hosting a one day symposium during the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco on September 13, focused on the next wave of approaches for designing and modelling low carbon/decarbonisation pathways for cities. The symposium is targeted to practitioners, policy-makers, city staff and academics who are actively involved in modelling or pathway design.
To take stock of the current state of practice and to develop an agenda for the next wave of city energy and emissions modelling.
Presentations will address the themes of the role of land-use, decarbonisation as economic development, data considerations, modelling approaches, case studies, equity and co-benefits.
SSG has led the development of low carbon pathways for more than 50 cities and over the past three years has developed a systems dynamics model to evaluate city-scale energy and emissions pathways with our partner whatIf? Technologies.
