Reduce, reuse and reimagine – Sustainable energy development in the city

Today, energy production stands for a large share of global carbon emissions. Consequently, reducing our energy use is an important step towards climate neutrality. The report “Reduce, reuse and reimagine – Sustainable energy development in the city” explores how different techniques can be applied to re-use energy, minimising emissions and waste.

Designing and planning the communities and cities of the future will involve not only saving energy, but also developing smart energy-efficient solutions focused on the re-use of energy. Great amounts of energy are currently wasted in our cities.

Did you know that fuel combustion for electricity and heat production and fuel losses account for more than 50 % of the EU-wide greenhouse gas emissions? With modern technology, a large share of energy can be reused.
