Abstract [en]

The global warming and energy crisis have att racted signifi cant att ention round the world in recent years. As a basic social unit involving building construction, inhabitant transportation, energy utilization, and individual behavior, the community may signifi cantly aff ect the carbon emissions generated by humans. The concept of low carbon community has been accordingly proposed to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and accelerate a prosperous low carbon economy. In this paper, various low carbon technologies, strategies, and lifestyles, involving community planning, advanced green building technologies, renewable energy supply systems, sustainable transportation, water recycle and waste management systems, change of low carbon living mode and energy-related behavior were thoroughly discussed. The current status of low carbon community practices in both developed countries and China, together with their corresponding achievements, has been reviewed. Evaluation tools and indicators were analyzed to provide important references for policy makers in supporting sustainable community construction activities. Furthermore, recommendations were proposed to facilitate the development of low carbon communities in the future.
