Advancing Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy & Electric Vehicle Policy

We are excited to officially release Advancing Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy & Electric Vehicle Policy in the St. Louis Region – a toolkit to help advocate for action and policy in the built environment that will help reduce climate change. We know this toolkit doesn’t provide all of the answers, but it sure does focus on a few of the most impactful and accessible actions – some of which have already been implemented locally.

Cities around the world have stepped up to set aggressive climate goals. Over 289 cities and counties have signed on to We Are Still In, an effort to support climate action at the local level by reducing greenhouse gas emissions 28% by 2025 and 80% by 2050, relative to a 2005 baseline. Locally, the City of St. Louis, Maplewood, and University City are signatories to We Are Still In. In October 2019, the City of St. Louis adopted an even more aggressive commitment to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 100% by 2050. But we still have a lot of work to do to meet these goals – so let’s get to work!

Advancing Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy & Electric Vehicle Policy in the St. Louis Region focuses on Energy Efficiency in Buildings, Renewable Energy Strategies, and Electric Vehicle Infrastructure. The City of St. Louis is leading on many of the strategies outlined in this toolkit, thanks to support from programs like Bloomberg Philanthropies American Cities Climate Challenge and the City Energy Project. By compiling these resources, we hope to amplify the City’s work and the work of other local governments to encourage action for climate protection.

Download Advancing Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy & Electric Vehicle Policy in the St. Louis Region and help us work towards a healthier, more equitable, more sustainable and more resilient region for all of us who live, work, learn and play here.

A big THANK YOU to Washington University in St. Louis and Bloomberg Philanthropies for their support in developing this toolkit!
