Energy Efficient Cities: Assessment Tool and Benchmarking Practices

From Open Energy Information


"Energy Efficient Cities: Assessment Tools and Benchmarking Practices has been developed from a careful review of selected papers presented during two ESMAP-sponsored sessions at the fifth World Bank Urban Research Symposium, “Cities and Climate Change: Responding to an Urgent Agenda,” which focused on tools and assessment approaches, and on good practices for energy-efficient urbanization. The scope of the papers encapsulates all three urban contexts: new cities, expanding cities, and retrofitting existing cities. The range of policy-relevant conceptual tools and practices discussed during the sessions, and subsequently built upon in this volume, helps achieve a better understanding of leverage points for energy-efficiency interventions and helps catalyze solutions that will delink high levels of carbon-intensive energy use from urban growth without compromising local development priorities."
