CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Despite the intolerable costs of climate change and inevitably declining oil,
natural gas and uranium reserves, the vast majority of cities and urban
communities are planned and managed as if such existential crises did not
exist. Hence the transition from fossil fuel dominated cities to an urban
future marked by a radically new, renewable energy infrastructure requires
entirely new tools and frames of decision-making.
This is an original guide to an entirely unprecedented urban transformation,
to cities and towns powered by renewable energy. Squarely focused on action, it
supports design, planning and management decisions and serves as a practical
guide to practitioners, academics and political leaders in communities and
cities worldwide, as a useful and well-structured reference text. It is built
on the most successful of past and present urban sustainability trends and
emerging infrastructure directions, presenting renewable energy applications as
offering new and inevitable approaches to urban infrastructure planning and the
design of cities.
