ACEEE ranks 75 of the largest U.S. cities on energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions and identifies the best-performing cities, the most improved, and those with substantial room for improvement, with recommendations for making progress. On the 2024 ACEEE City Clean Energy Scorecard, Miami ranked #27, rising 22 places from #49 on ACEEE’s last scorecard released in 2021. Miami performed best in the Buildings category, and activities that increased Miami’s score include electrification goals in the City’s Miami Forever Carbon Neutral plan that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and the City’s stormwater management policies that encourage green infrastructure to mitigate extreme heat while managing flooding.
