Urban Energy (MADE Collection)
Amsterdam strives to reduce CO2 emissions and use more renewable energy. While most supplied energy is still fossil-based and stems from city surroundings, the goal is to transition to more sustainable and local solutions.
The transition from fossil-based resources to more sustainable forms of energy like electricity, heating and cooling, is overdue to best preserve our environment. Therefore, Amsterdam has the ambition to reduce CO2 emission by 55% in 2030 and 95% in 2050. This requires a major transformation of our current energy systems. How can ensure the energy use in urban areas will remain reliable, sustainable and affordable?
Research in the field of Circularity in Urban Regions in this collection was exectuted by students of the Master's programme Msc MADE (Metropolitan Analysis, Design and Engineering).
