Sustainable energy planning that encompasses the concept of smart cities has considerable potential to help contribute significantly to the success of the European energy and climate targets. For improved energy efficiency, it is essential to find low carbon solutions for the urban environment. The integration and management of energy supplies, particularly with a focus on the exploitation of local resources (e.g. waste heat, renewables), is being examined through the fundamental concept of exergy. This book is designed to aid decision making, especially in regards to national and sustainable energy designs, and demonstrates how intelligent energy systems can best be utilized.
