In adopting the resolution, Concord became the 72nd municipality in the United States and the 4th municipality in New Hampshire to set a goal of 100% renewable energy.

The aspirational goal covers electricity, thermal energy and transportation, and applies to the entire City of Concord. The electricity part of the goal is to be achieved by 2030, and the thermal energy and transportation parts of the goal are to be achieved by 2050.

Willing and the CEEC will lead the preparation of a strategic plan for the implementation of Concord’s 100% renewable energy goal. The strategic plan is expected to be presented to the City Council in the summer of 2019.

Earlier this year, Willing and the CEEC authored a White Paper outlining why Concord should adopt a 100% renewable energy goal, a copy of which is linked below.
