Description

Sustainable Energy Transition for Cities brings together empirical and applied research in both urban planning and sustainable energy, offering coherent and innovative best practices for urban energy transition planning. Using a multidisciplinary framework, the book views cities as an integrated system composed of components such as neighborhoods and districts within an overall net-zero energy balance. Intended for academics, practitioners and policymakers interested in sustainable energy transition, the book offers insights and best practices to promote the transition to a low carbon urban society.

Key Features

  • Includes real-world case studies from around the globe
  • Examines replicable tools such as GIS, BIM and the E-City Platform for developing and implementing energy-efficient urban models
  • Provides learning aids such as figures, maps, conceptual models, operative schemes, literature reviews, guideline tables, extensive bibliography, and links
