The Vancouver Economic Commission and C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group are hosting a half-day Renewable Energy Challenge Workshop on the afternoon of Tuesday, March 1, 2016. Participants are invited to work to solve 5+ concrete challenges faced by cities and businesses in their efforts to be 100 percent renewable energy-powered. C40 cities (Vancouver, New York, and Copenhagen), as well as large companies  from Vancouver, will showcase their renewable energy goals and accomplishments, and then outline key challenge(s) for which they are seeking  solutions. The key focus will include transportation fuels, EV infrastructure, net-zero buildings, and district energy. The intention is that challenges presented are concrete and will lead to real action and transactions, with city-focused solutions going on to materialize on C40’s new City Solutions Platform.  Interested Participants should contact Juvarya Veltkamp at
