Cities are vital to the world’s economies and will play a key role in driving energy sustainability and meeting climate targets. They alone account for 40 percent of final energy consumption and up to 70 percent of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
This study, from Monitor Deloitte Spain, explores the future of sustainable cities and their role in urban energy transition in Spain. It outlines the role that public authorities can play in changing the energy model and shares some energy sustainability measures for cities. This study also recommends adoption of energy sustainable cities index (ESCI) for determining the degree of energy sustainability of cities and the effectiveness of the measures that are implemented.
