Generating the Post-Carbon City: Clean Energy Cities Will Require Changes in Both Policy and Technology
CCSC director Dr. Pincetl wrote an article in Future Structure about the post-carbon city.
“We face a need for transformation toward renewable sources of energy, and conserving other resources like water, as the very success of applying fossil energy is undermining the viability of the modern age. Going forward, as cities work to build more sustainable and resilient communities, the soft infrastructure – the ideas, laws, and policies – that has served us since the industrial age, must be reconsidered. In essence we must begin to plan and implement a post-carbon city and do so through planning our future structure.”
