How can cities reach long-term climate neutrality and achieve net-zero emissions? Do cities’ actions have the necessary impact on emissions? Today, most cities rely heavily on emissions data to answer such questions. But emissions data comes with several inherent flaws: it is difficult to collect, it comes with a significant time lag, and often lacks precision. Therefore, emissions data can be of limited use, if cities want to know the impact of their policies, or the overall speed of their energy and climate transition.
In this Live Chat, we will discuss a new approach on how to tackle the climate challenge in cities – using transition targets. This method, developed by ClimateView, breaks down overarching climate goals into tangible and measurable targets. This approach seeks to unlock valuable data on the actual performance of cities’ energy and climate transition, and provide insights that are actionable in the local context.
We will discuss how transition targets can be used in practice at the city level through the ClimateView online tool, why measurable targets are essential in the energy and climate transition, and why it is also key to distinguish targets from actions in this approach.

What a peculiar year to celebrate Energy Cities’ 30th anniversary! At a time when social distancing is required, collective intelligence is more important than ever.
The Energy Cities team invites you to a series of weekly live chats around the energy transition. Every Thursday after lunch, grab a nice piece of cake and a cup of tea (not included), and join us online!
