LISD is co-organising this year’s Sustainable Transport event of the United Nations Center for Regional Development (UNCRD / Intergovernmental 12th Regional Environmental Sustainable Transport Forum in Asia). It will take place on October 28, 2019, in Hanoi, Vietnam.
New LISD Publication: Urban Energy Transition – Renewable Strategies for Cities and Regions, 2nd Edition
Urban Energy Transition, 2nd edition, is the definitive science and practice-based compendium of energy transformations in the global urban system. This volume is a timely and rich resource for all, as citizens, companies and their communities, from remote villages to megacities and metropolitan regions, rapidly move away from fossil fuel and nuclear power, to renewable energy as civic infrastructure investment, source of revenue and prosperity, and existential resilience strategy.
“An excellent and timely resource for practice, policy, teaching and research. This a fresh and sweeping, rigorously scientific and yet extraordinarily applied and practical look at a rising global phenomenon: renewable energy for cities and regions. Beautifully illustrated in full colour, this instills great optimism for this rapidly urbanizing planet, still all too dependent of fossil fuel, and therefore precariously slipping towards climate calamity.“ Elsevier Verified Reviewer.

Lighting uses 2% of global electricity generation, estimated to emit nearly 2.8 Gigatons of CO2, and costing some 4 billion USD each year. Prof. Peter Droege presents a strategy of deriving all of this worldwide by 2040 through the most powerful light source: the star we call Sun. Watch the presentation for Project Sunrise.
