The international compendium with 33 chapters by more than 60 international authors contains solutions in the transformation of cities to an urban development framework based on renewable energies. The interdisciplinary handbook covers a wide range of topics that are crucial for the successful implementation of the energy transition. These range from effective, outcome oriented policies and practices in carbon emissions, urban thermal performance planning, energy efficiency services, planning methods and tools to support renewable communities and global trends in urban mobility, to the impact of smart energy networks and decentralized energy supply.
