Thematic report on urban energy planning: buildings, industry, transport and energy generation

Research output: Book/ReportReportResearch


The report reviews relations between urban structure (spatial structure + institutional structure) and four core themes of urban energy:
• Urban planning and energy use in buildings (mainly residential buildings)
• Industrial energy use and urban form
• Spatial Planning, Urban Form and Transport Energy Consumption
• Urban energy generation

The reports ends with a summary of potential measure and policies of spatial planning in each of the four themes. However, we highlight also that it is crucial to consider the wider perspective and include considerations of potential rebound effects on direct and indirect energy use.
