Beschreibung:

No progress towards sustainable development is possible without the participation of informed and aware citizens and decision-makers. This book examines a dynamic sector - energy - and a space - city - that are critical for sustainability. Urban energy systems are capital intensive and have long lives. Immediate change is difficult, but innovation is crucial for progress toward more intelligent systems. Here is an informative guide for decision makers and citizens alike.
This book provides unspecialized decision-makers, citizens, students and policy-makers of the future with significant information about a dynamic sector: energy - and a space: city - that are both critical for sustainability. Progress towards sustainable development is impossible without the active participation of informed and aware citizens and decision-makers. Cities and the energy field are now on the verge of dramatic changes. Immediate change is difficult and innovation is crucial if inefficient patterns are to be transformed into intelligent systems.
