Smart sustainable cities - Exploring ICT solutions for reduced energy use in cities
2014 (English)In: Environmental Modelling & Software, ISSN 1364-8152, Vol. 56, 52-62 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This article explores the opportunities of using ICT as an enabling technology to reduce energy use in cities. An analytical framework is developed in which a typology of ICT opportunities is combined with a typology of household functions, i.e. all the activities that require energy. The energy used for household functions is calculated using a consumption-based lifecycle perspective. The analytical framework is intended to be of use to researchers, city and regional authorities and ICT companies interested in acquiring a better understanding of how ICT investments could contribute to reduce energy use in cities.
