Cities account for over 70 percent of global energy use and nearly 50 percent of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Heating and cooling can account for up to half of local energy consumption. Any solution for the climate and energy transition must explicitly address sustainable urban heating and cooling, as well as electricity. This session will introduce participants to best practices and drivers for managing the energy infrastructure, while making the transition to deployment of modern climate-resilient and low-carbon district energy systems.
