Electricity grids are key to renewable energy distribution

 

Cities and communities need clean, renewable, wind and solar energy that can produce green hydrogen and electricity to power homes, offices and supporting transport infrastructure.

 

 

 

 

Cities are hubs for ideas, commerce, culture, science, productivity, social development and much more. At their best, cities have enabled people to advance socially and economically. With the number of people living within cities projected to rise to 5 billion people by 2030, itís important that efficient urban planning and management practices are in place to deal with the challenges brought by urbanization.

Many challenges exist to maintaining cities in a way that continues to create jobs and prosperity without straining land and resources. Common urban challenges include congestion, lack of funds to provide basic services, a shortage of adequate housing, declining infrastructure and rising air pollution within cities.

Rapid urbanization challenges, such as the safe removal and management of solid waste within cities, can be overcome in ways that allow them to continue to thrive and grow, while improving resource use and reducing pollution and poverty. One such example is an increase in municipal waste collection. There needs to be a future in which cities provide opportunities for all, with access to basic services, energy, housing, transportation and more.

 

 

 

 

 

SOLAR POWER

 

With the amount of solar energy that hits the world in one hour there is enough energy to power the world for one year. Solar power can be photovoltaic panels to make electricity, or evacuated tubes to concentrate light radiation to make hot water.

  

 

 

 

 

WIND POWER

 

Wind power or wind energy is the use of air flow through wind turbines to provide the mechanical power to turn electric generators. Wind power is a sustainable and renewable alternative to burning fossil fuels, and has much less effect on the environment.

 

We assert that cities and communities have the right to expect the supporting infrastructure and clean air to breathe, as per United Nations SDG 11.
