Jaipur has ranked third in the list of world’s top 10 smart renewable cities, with the silicon valley of India, Bengaluru, coming at the sixth spot. US’ city of San Diego topped the list, while Paris was ranked at the bottom.
The list was part of a latest study conducted by accounting and consultancy firm Deloitte’s report titled “Global Renewable Energy Trends”.
San Diego was the global leader, with over a million people by their share of power generation from wind and solar. The report said, “Solar and wind already account for over a third of its electricity mix, and the city has a 100 per cent renewables target by 2035. San Diego is also a locally-driven SRC — while the US government is stepping back from climate commitments, San Diego has vowed to continue its deployment of renewables.”
SRCs recognise that solar and wind can power their smart city goals. Solar and wind are at the intersection of these goals because they contribute to depollution, decarbonisation, and resilience while enabling clean electric mobility, economic empowerment, and business growth, the report stated.
The report said: “Jaipur is considered as a nationally-driven smart renewable cities . India’s national government created a 100 Smart Cities Mission that included a solar energy requirement. Jaipur does not have a renewable target, but will benefit from ambitious state and national targets set this year.”
Top 10 smart renewable cities of the world according to ‘Global Renewable Energy Trends’ are:
- San Diego
- Los Angelus
This has been determined that smart renewable cities are termed as those cities, which are having solar or wind power and basically a smart city plan comprises a sustainable energy component.
Jaipur produced 30% wind and solar power yearly. Nearly three million people are residing over there. Bengaluru has 11 million population and 10% share. Check this site credit bridgepayday.com offer help to finance your business.
