The world population will probably exceedind eleven billion by the end of the century. Most of this population lives in urban areas. Our quickly changing world faces great challenges when it comes to the sustainable provision of energy. Despite its huge potential for increasing sustainability, the use of renewable energy in urban places is still scarce. This perspective highlights the urban contribution to renewable energy, which will be essential for the welfare of a growing urban population. This Special Issue aims to advance in the contribution of Urban Generation of Renewable Energy in order to achieve more sustainable cities. This Special Issue seeks contributions spanning a broad range of topics related, but are not limited, to:
- Solar flat plate collectors
- Stand alone PV
- Solar collector
- Effects of dust or sand on the materials used in solar systems
- Wind turbines for rooftop of a building
- Energy conversion from urban biomass or residues
- Energy management for sewage water
- Bioclimatic architecture and green buildings
- Public and private urban energy saving
- Policy for urban energy saving
- District heating
- Sustainable cities
