100% Renewable Energy Districts: 2050 Vision
The energy and carbon footprint of urban areas will increase with urbanisation and the growing economic activity of urban citizens. The decarbonisation of cities and city districts presents an imperative and an obvious area of priority. Districts, in particular, have specific opportunities to drive the decarbonization efforts as they know best about their local needs and locally available infrastructure and resources.
