Energy and Urban Innovation 2010

This report outlines the energy-related challenges that cities, particularly large and ‘mega-cities’, will face during the coming decades. It analyses the technical and policy actions that must be taken to meet these challenges and the role the energy industry and business can play in designing and implementing efficient solutions.

The report is the result of a bottom-up process in which World Energy Council members carried out case studies on a comprehensive set of large to “mega” cities, both in the developed and emerging world. It is
complemented by an extensive literature study.
