Urban energy systems
Urban energy systems. Network Industries Quarterly, vol. 14, nos 2 & 3, June 2012
Urban energy systems face significant challenges in a fast urbanising world and at the same time technological development creates new opportunities for energy production and management in cities. This double issue is the third in the series focusing on urban infrastructures and covers different aspects of urban energy ranging from photovoltaics to smart grids and from energy demand management to the introduction of energy as alternative currency.
