Kansas City is very excited to help welcome 10 new cities to the City Energy Project!
With funding from Bloomberg Philanthropies, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, and The Kresge Foundation, the City Energy Project officially launched on January 29, 2014. In its first phase, the project supported 10 cities: Atlanta; Boston; Chicago; Denver; Houston; Kansas City, Mo.; Los Angeles; Orlando, Fla.; Philadelphia; and Salt Lake City.
In December 2015, CEP announced that Bloomberg Philanthropies, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, and The Kresge Foundation doubled their commitment, providing an additional $10 million in funding to extend the project from 2016 through 2018 and expand the work to a cohort of new participating cities. In November 2016, 10 new cities joined the project. They are Des Moines, Iowa; Fort Collins, Colo.; Miami-Dade County; New Orleans; Pittsburgh; Providence, R.I.; Reno, Nev.; San Jose, Calif.; St. Louis; and St. Paul, Minn.
The City Energy Project mission remain the same – create healthier, more prosperous American cities by targeting their largest source of energy use and climate pollution: buildings. Visit the National project’s website (cityenergyproject.org) or follow us at #CityEnergyProject to find out more.
