  11. 11. THE CITY OF THE 21ST CENTURY Sustainable use of scarce resources : energy, materials, land use, money, human capital Green, low carbon economy: 80 to 95% emission reduction by 2050 Resilient city : potential to adapt to changing circumstances eg. climate conditions High living quality, strong local economy 11
  12. 12. GHG MITIGATION STRATEGIES (EUROPEAN REFERENCE) Built environment: residential + non-residential buildings typically 40-60 % of emissions tremendous cost-effective saving potential Transport and mobility typically 15-30 % of emissions requires major investments in public & soft transport Industry and energy production share strongly dependent on local context Urban green infrastructure cooling effect : 4% (parks, trees) to 10% (green roofs & facades) temperature reduction Buildings Transport Green infrastructure Consumption 12
  13. 13. ENERGY STRATEGIES Building District Regional scale 13
  14. 14. OPTIMAL INTEGRATION OF RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES Macro - Meso - Micro and their integration in urban and spatial planning 14
  15. 15. MORE THEN ENERGY More than 50% van of all materials excavated on earth are used in construction Construction and demolition waste about 31% of the total waste production in the EU Material use accounts for 20% of environmental impact during total life cycle, and this is increasing through more use of insulation materials Sustainable use of materials 15
  16. 16. SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS, BUILDINGS, DISTRICTS Contribution to environmental impact categories such as global warming, depletion of mineral resources, depletion of fossil fuels, photochemical ozone creation, acidification,.. Used for product development, innovation, policy making, communication Life cycle assessment (LCA) and Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) as a harmonised framework to understand the environmental impact of building materials, elements, buildings 16
  17. 17. URBAN ENVIRONMENT Air quality Urban Climate 17
  18. 18. URBAN HEAT ISLAND EFFECT 18
  19. 19. SMART & SUSTAINABLE CITY PROJECTS 19
