Sub-national level governments, such as Canadian provinces and American or Australian states, can play a major role in determining patterns of energy use. However, to date, only a few sub-nationals have explicitly recognized the role of municipal governments in achieving their renewable energy goals as part of larger climate change plans. This workshop will look at British Columbia and California’s experiences over the last decade to illustrate different approaches that subnational governments can take to encourage municipal leadership in renewable energy and energy efficiency.
