Opportunities for GreenTech in a Renewable City
500 Granville Street
Building on the Greenest City Action Plan, the City of Vancouver just adopted its Renewable City Strategy and will move to 100% renewable energy in the electricity, heating & cooling, and transportation sectors by 2050. This policy is based on a massive increase in energy efficiency and is part of a movement towards 100% renewable energy by a number of world cities including Copenhagen, San Francisco, Munich, and Frankfurt.
The strategy has the potential to create opportunities for BC’s GreenTech sector and demand innovation from local companies and entrepreneurs to develop solutions that reduce energy use, generate renewable energy, and reduce emissions. Join GreenTech Exchange and Renewable Cities, a global program of the SFU Centre for Dialogue, to discuss the opportunities and challenges for the private sector in reaching the 100% RE goal in Vancouver.
Guiding questions include:
What does the Renewable City Strategy mean for local entrepreneurs?
What are some of the broader trends in the GreenTech market for companies working in the urban space?
What sort of challenges do entrepreneurs and startups face?
