When New York City leads, the world follows. That's why the announcement a few weeks ago of the creation of a technical working group to help the city cut greenhouse gas emissions from its building sector by 30 percent by 2025 and 60 percent by 2050 is such exciting news.

Starting Thursday, the rates that Pacific Gas and Electric Co. charges for electricity and natural gas service will rise, pushing up monthly bills by 5.9 percent for the average home. The money will pay for replacing old gas distribution lines, installing more “smart grid” equipment to minimize blackouts, and hiring more workers for the giant utility’s call centers, among other things. “There’s a lot of work to do on the system that the commission agreed was important for safe and reliable ser

Through case-studies of citizens in different countries, the film explores a range of factors that have led to the present crisis, economic and identity challenges across Europe. High-level experts analyse how and why things are going so wrong.

The film includes fictional scenes, set in a post-EU future, which feature archaeologist Charles Granda, played by Angus Deayton, travelling on a flight through a menacing storm, explaining to a child passenger what the EU was.

Sombre, thought-provoking and witty, the film frames Europe through the eyes of those who have most at stake: the Europeans themselves.

UK's "first eco-town" built green from the ground up | Stu Robarts  GizMag.com | sustainability | Scoop.it

An eco-town described as the UK's "most sustainable development" is moving closer to being occupied. The first residents are expected to move into North West Bicester later this year. Planning permission has also just been granted for up to 2,600 homes in the next stage of the project.

North West Bicester (pronounced "Bister") is one of four designated eco-towns in the UK announced by the government in 2007. The aim is to create a town that is good for the environment, good for the economy and a nice place to live.

It is also one of a handful of One Planet communities around the world. The One Planet scheme was set up by sustainability charity BioRegional. It aims to find ways for people and societies to reduce their level of consumption to an extent that is sustainable based on the amount of resources that the planet can provide.

In addition to homes that are highly sustainable, North West Bicester will offer a mix of affordable housing. Homes will be built to a minimum standard of code level 4 for Sustainable Homes and Sustainable Homes and BREEAM excellence. Residents will be able to access a community hub via mobile devices that will allows them to check car club availability, monitor energy usage and prices, check public transport information and communicate with other residents. Homes will also be future-proofed with climate change adaptation in mind.

Leaders of European cities make pledge to tackle climate change ("preferential buying policy will make a change")

Leaders of European cities make pledge to tackle climate change ("preferential buying policy will make a change") | sustainability | Scoop.it
Representatives of 30 cities gather in Paris to sign declaration that will also commit them to use their €10bn purchasing power to buy eco-friendly

Leaders and representatives of 30 European cities will gather in Paris on Thursday to declare their commitment to “clean” policies to fight climate change.

Officials will also sign a declaration agreeing to use their collective purchasing power – estimated at around €10bn (£7.4bn) a year – to buy eco-friendly.

The gathering comes eight months before Paris hosts the United Nations climate change conference, known as COP21, aimed at achieving a binding, universal and international agreement on climate for the first time in more than 20 years of UN negotiations.

In a joint statement signed by 26 European mayors, including London’s Boris Johnson, city representatives said they hoped combining forces to favour green and low-carbon industries for procurement contracts would have a “leverage effect on the private sector that very often aligns its own requirements with the public sector”.

“[The] time has now come for European capitals and metropolises to pool our efforts to tackle climate change. This requires a closer dialogue between cities through a more regular exchange of expertise and good practices,” they declared.

The mayors will arrive at Paris’ city hall in electric Autolib’ cars, from the city’s car-sharing service, decorated in the colours of their country.

The summit comes a week after Paris was declared the most polluted city on the planet after a choking cloud almost obscured its most symbolic monuments including the Eiffel Tower and left the city of light looking more like the capital of smog.

The money trail goes a long way in influencing climate change policies and actions. Commercial activity will always respond to where the money is.

This decision of government leaders to purchase only "eco-friendly" products gives a positive incentive for climate action.

‘Big is beautiful’ is blinding our energy policy makers

‘Big is beautiful’ is blinding our energy policy makers | sustainability | Scoop.it

"What we need is "small energy". The Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP) is an important step in the right direction. It allows for private producers to bid for grid-connected renewable energy tenders. Several projects have been awarded and more are lining up, yet the initiative will fall short of its potential while it sets a cap on bidding opportunities and centralises control.

What we desperately need is an innovative system of production and consumption of energy that happens at the local level and allows everyone, not just recognised bidders, to produce, consume and share electricity. In many European countries, a feed-in system has given households and businesses an economic incentive to produce energy, to meet their own needs and/or sell to the national provider."
