Renewable Energy Transition Strategies: Practical Innovations for Urban Areas

SFU’s Faculty of Environment and Renewable Cities to reconvene online course beginning fall 2018

Renewable Cities is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Simon Fraser University’s Faculty of Environment to again deliver Renewable Energy Transition Strategies: Practical Innovations for Urban Areas. This innovative online course is aimed at working professionals.

By highlighting foundational first actions, this interdisciplinary course will help provide the knowledge and perspective needed to confidently lead a municipal- level renewable energy transition.

The course covers a range of inter-related topics including the global context for renewable energy transitions, energy efficiency in buildings, sustainable transportation, renewable energy literacy, communicating with and engaging stakeholders, and resources for continued learning.


This course is designed for local government staff, elected officials, researchers, and individuals from the private sector and civil society organizations concerned about their energy future. While course materials are anchored in Canadian and U.S. urban contexts, key principles are relevant to an international audience.
