Austin To Host National Clean Energy Capital Competition
0/5 based on 0 votes.
Solar Austin, a non-profit organization devoted to the promotion of solar and other renewable forms of energy, is organizing the first Energy Freedom Challenge competition for the title "Clean Energy Capital of the U.S." The group received a $45,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy in August to host the contest in its first year. The objective is to challenge U.S. cities to rely upon renewable energy sources for at least 50 percent of their energy consumption by 2025. Potential alternative energy sources include wind, solar, geothermal, methane, and biomass power. The Union of Concerned Scientists will be responsible for establishing the rules, metrics, and qualifications for the contest. Austin city officials see the contest and the "Clean Energy Capital" title as a way to create positive publicity and attract new businesses and residents. (via alt-e blog)
