URBAN PLANNING AND MOBILITY

 Both urban planning and mobility practices in municipalities are critical for energy efficient, low carbon futures. Sensible spatial planning is a precondition for sustainable transport, while placing appropriate conditions on building developments can support energy efficiency greatly.

Sustainable Energy Solutions for South African Local Government: A Practical Guide

This is the third iteration of a practical how-to handbook for local municipalities on the roll-out of sustainable energy measures. The first section focuses on governance and legislation (e.g. mandates, green procurement, institutionalising of sustainable energy concerns, etc.); the second on municipal sustainable energy initiatives (e.g. solar water heating, efficient buildings, sustainable transport, etc.); and the third on macro developments (e.g. smart grids, concentrated solar, ocean energy, etc.). Interactive icons assist in skipping between chapters. (SEA, 2017)
