Public-private collaborations for cleaner communities

Register to download

State and local governments and energy utilities across the country have made a spectrum of commitments to meet the climate challenge—setting voluntary and mandatory targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing clean energy resource deployment.

Despite the many challenges it has introduced, the COVID-19 pandemic also creates new opportunities for decarbonization—especially if public and private stakeholders forge partnerships to build cleaner and stronger communities. Read this paper to learn:

  • The different obstacles that state and local governments, energy companies, and major employers face along the path to decarbonization.
  • Areas of shared interest and opportunity—and examples of successful public-private collaborations.
  • Concrete ways to get started, from stakeholder workshops to action plans.
