Tackling Climate Change in the Cities We Live In
Illustration from Raymond Biesinger in OnEarth profile.
OnEarth magazine published a list of nine visionary leaders who are taking action against climate change, starting with the cities they live in. Elevate Energy CEO Anne Evens is on the list for her efforts to build the marketplace for residential hourly pricing, which reduces peak demand and carbon emissions.
In the article, she says:
“We’ve seen benefits at the consumer, environment, and community levels,” Evens says. “I’m a big believer that a lot of small changes can add up to produce a large, significant one. Or to put it another way, that many individual participants can contribute to the larger goal of lowering emissions.”
We’re honored to be on the list with the following activists, sustainable developers, experts, scientists, and leaders:
Rachel Filippini, executive director, Group Against Smog and Pollution (GASP)
Enrique Penalosa, former mayor, Bogotá, Colombia
Irma Soldevilla, project director, Energy Observatory Dept., Barcelona Energy Agency
Kimberly Wasserman, executive director, Little Village Environmental Justice Organization
Jason Geddes, environmental services administrator, City of Reno
Ger Barron, cofounder, Amsterdam Smart City
David Ramslie, sustainable development expert, Vancouver, Canada
Aja Brown, mayor, City of Compton
