What should replace gas boilers and who should pay?
Visible change: Why the future of electrification is defined by transparency, data and digitalisation
Smart electrical infrastructure at the low and medium-voltage levels is a fundamental element of a fully networked energy system. Andreas Matthé of Siemens Smart Infrastructure outlines how greater connectivity is building intelligence into electrification.
Decentralised generation will serve shifting electricity requirements, but also brings unique challenges. How can microgrids help deliver reliable, sustainable solutions? And what lessons are being drawn from Siemens own microgrid, powering its campus in Vienna?
Allowing micro-mobility operators to have a significant presence across the city and building an effective dockless network will help incentivise Londoners to hop on a bike.
The idea of transforming cities from concrete jungles to urban forests is a popular one. But has your city actually turned into a lush oasis yet? No, neither has ours.
Office for Budget Responsibility data shows the net cost of the UK’s energy transition is to be borne by the power and buildings sectors.
The region's two main finance hubs are moving quickly to adopt global best practice on sustainable finance. They recognise policy certainty in this area is necessary to drive investment into companies, particularly given Asia's distinct characteristics.
Will Butler-Adams, the CEO of Brompton, on climate change, fitness and the future of urban transport.
Work, education, entertainment, or simply better connectivity all draw people to urban areas. By the end of this century, around 85% of the world population are predicted to live in cities, but new research has shone a light on what suburban means for emission levels.
The Sustainable Development Goals – a set of 17 globally agreed-upon targets for the year 2030 – are clearly listed and appear to be easy to subscribe to. However, development planning and the implementation of development projects are never straightforward.
A majority of European countries have failed to comply with the latest nearly zero-energy buildings standards, which must be revised to make them more harmonised, says the Buildings Performance Institute Europe, a think tank.
Amsterdam’s fig trees are showing why cities will play a vital role in the fight to stop the decline of biodiversity
Ever since humans started to create settlements thousands of years ago, many plant and animal species have struggled to survive. However, some have managed to find a new habitat inside and around urban areas. Could a change in human attitude towards nature help to halt the decline of biodiversity?
Manchester led the first industrial revolution and it has ambitions of 'doing things first', but in reality learning from others and sharing best practice will probably get cities to net zero fastest.
