Over 100 cities now get at least 70% of their electricity from renewable sources such as hydro, geothermal, solar and wind.

This includes Reykjavík, Iceland where geothermal and hydro-power are powering much of the city, and Basel, Switzerland where 100% of renewable power comes from the city’s own energy supply company.

In the US, where some 58 cities and towns have now committed to transition to 100% renewables, cities such as Burlington, Vermont are showing what’s possible with all electricity now coming from wind, solar, hydro, and biomass.
