urban energy solutions


  • Urban Densification: Future cities are expected to experience steadily increasing urban density. Denser cities translate to more efficient land use, reducing the need for private cars and leading to more tightly integrated mass transit systems
  • Local Energy Resource Integration: Resource steams such as wastewater, sewage and other solid waste generated by inhabitants should be integrated into urban energy system planning.
  • Efficiency in the Built Environment: Increased efficiency of energy use in the built environment with higher efficiency standards is a key feature of future cities
  • Microclimates and Climate Change: Microclimates and urban heat island effects are not often considered in energy systems models, yet they can have significant local impacts. Urban heat island effects can raise city temperatures by up to few degree Celsius, which impacts the cooling and heating energy demand of buildings. Furthermore, the immediate effect of global temperature rise is a significant increase in the cooling demand of buildings
  • Transport Infrastructure Changes: Technology changes in the transport sector have significant impacts on urban planning. For instance, with the increased adoption of electric mobility, cities will need to build large charging infrastructure, which ideally powered by renewable energy sources. Autonomous driving and mass transit systems to alleviate congestion and reduce the demand for private vehicle, along with their associated land and fuel use
