We believe in the power of people, nature and technology.
Countries are becoming increasingly urbanized and is projected that the global population of approximately 68% (i.e. 6.7 billion people) will live in urban areas by 2050¹. The already evident climate impacts will only accelerate to worsen, our lives are at stake and being on the frontlines of this global crisis, cities are urged to be integral to its solutions. For centuries, cities have helped foster some of mankind’s greatest ideas. There is no stretch of imagination to believe that cities will now take the lead in addressing climate change.
The time is now — URBAN RENEWABLES aims to reshape the way we power cities around the world, with the ultimate goal of creating capability of self-reliance, we set to establish the primary role for renewable energy to play in meeting the cities’ entire energy needs. We develop sustainable energy solutions for the cities’ residents and local corporates to partake in their energy transition because community engagement is the way forward.
Here are some facts about the world and cities we live in.
Global land area taken by cities
World’s population resides in cities (4.2 billion)
Global GDP generated in cities
Global energy consumption derived from cities
Global energy generated from renewables
Carbon emissions come from energy sector
Global human-induced CO2 emissions derived from cities
Renewable energy to fossil fuel jobs created
Global warming by 2030 marks irreversible climate change
Cities worldwide have 100% renewable energy targets
We believe in the power of people, natural resources and technology. Together, we unlock cities’ renewable energy potential towards creating a sustainable living environment.
We fund and manage the total lifecycle of every project we develop, from planning through to operation and maintenance.
URBAN RENEWABLES‘ operations focus on integrating the following SDGs.
