Training and Development

The World Energy Cities Academic Partnership (WECAP) is a collaborative effort to generate relevant research activities through WECP member universities. The initiative addresses issues such as CO2 emissions, usage of fossil fuels and renewable energy sources. 

Catalysts for Change

In October 2009, nine WECP members signed the Calgary Climate Change Accord. These cities commit to being environmental leaders and catalysts for change by utilizing official policies and plans to reduce municipal government greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. They commit to reduce these emissions from their 2005 baseline levels by a minimum of 20% by 2020 and a minimum of 80% by 2050.
