The incremental energy upgrade targets outlined in Achieving Zero accelerate market demand and the creation of a new financial mechanisms to develop locally-based renewable energy. In traditional energy utility models, renewable energy systems are centrally developed and accessed through rate premiums. While utility scale deployment of renewables will continue, Achieving Zero also supports renewable energy systems that are locally developed and owned through community partnerships. This option allows for diverse participation in renewable energy generation and provides communities the opportunity to mitigate the risks of climate-based disruptions. The accelerated development of distributed renewable energy complements energy upgrades and supports the electrification and decarbonization of building systems and transportation infrastructure.
