What is the American Cities Climate Challenge Renewables Accelerator?

The Renewables Accelerator provides cutting-edge tools, resources and technical assistance to help U.S. cities advance ambitious renewable energy goals. Our partnership supports the Bloomberg American Cities Climate Challenge and the Urban Sustainability Directors Network cities with renewable energy commitments.

We work with cohorts of cities grouped around key renewable procurement methods to deliver knowledge, tools, assistance, and peer learning to quickly implement and scale clean energy solutions.

This site is intended to be a one-stop shop for local governments in the U.S. to effectively procure and scale clean energy. The tools, resources, and guidance provided and documented on the site are all free to use and publicly accessible. We encourage you to share this site with others that could benefit from its offerings.
