“Clean energy cities is a framework of recommendations that we gave to five different typologies of cities globally across the world.” Dr. Stephen Lorimer, Centre for Net Zero
If you want to be ahead of the curve in understanding how our cities need to change and are being transformed, then be sure to listen to Dr. Stephen Lorimer of the Centre For Net Zero, who speaks both passionately and expertly on this topic.
Dr. Lorimer has built new programmes and teams across smart cities, data, and energy. Clean Energy Cities is his project at Centre for Net Zero, powered by Octopus Energy – and delivered an international standard for cities to be the new leaders of the energy transition.
He has written the £16m business case that created the Data Standards Authority for the UK Government, and the £5m case for the London Office of Technology and Innovation for London’s 33 boroughs and the Mayor.
Stephen has managed a new £2m pre-seed fund for sustainable technologies at Imperial Business School.
He is an expert in sustainable cities and data sharing after years as the policy lead for data sharing for the UK government, for smart cities for the Mayor of London, and as a consultant for urban design and regeneration.
We took data from 17 cities to form these from the open data about the structure of the city, the number of people the commercial floor space, the number of households, the density, and the open space available within the city, but also from the energy system. How much was decarbonized?
