Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A major readjustment to the generation and use of energy is urgently needed to address the challenges posed by anthropomorphic climate change and wider issues of sustainable development relating to energy security and equitable access, as well as meeting the needs of growing populations in both urban and rural areas many of whom are in the developing world. It is likely that to achieve sustainable development in the energy sector many separate initiatives will have to be implemented, including measures to retrofit existing building stock, to seek alternative transport systems, to develop generation capacity from renewable energy resources and to implement clean energy technologies to ensure wider environmental protection. The provision of energy services can also be seen as part of an integrated component of a wider system of urban infrastructure through system scale efficiencies and demand side savings (for example through the smart design of future building stock and water provision).
