Mayors Focused on Energy Efficiency

10-mayors

February 4, 2014

By Dr. Tyra OldhamLANDsds Sustainable Voice News

Keeping it simple the creation of sustainable and efficient cities is driven by its leadership.  The new focus on Mayors as the new leaders can inspire cities to model and deliver positive change.  The commitment of Mayors  in “Cities Pledge Carbon Emissions Cuts from Buildings” requiring creatives and innovation for success.

The 10 cities are Atlanta, BostonChicagoDenver, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Orlando, Philadelphia and Salt Lake City,” reports the Environmental Leader.

What’s energetic are “Mayors from 10 major US cities pledged to boost the energy efficiency in their buildings as part of an initiative to cut a combined 5 to 7 million tons of carbon emissions annually. The total annual emissions reduction goal is equivalent to the amount of electricity used by 700,000 to nearly 1 million American homes each year, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council. If successful, the 10 participating cities will lower energy bills by nearly $1 billion annually.”

“The cities will pursue the goal under the City Energy Project, an initiative from the NRDC and the Institute for Market Transformation designed to create healthier, more prosperous cities by targeting buildings, their largest source of energy use and climate pollution.”

Cities can achieve reductions if willing to play sustainably and not politically. The politics in success can be countermanded by actual successes. The 10 cities involved are making choices for energy efficiency that is inevitable. Infrastructural obsolescence dictates cities to institute a plan for efficiency to offset costs that energy and deterioration are producing.  The hopes for success will drive other cities to follow suite and replicate their success.
