The growing trend of urbanization has led to new challenges for urban planners. Urban population, which is presently half of the world’s total population, is projected to increase its share to two-thirds of the total population by 2030. This population is responsible for around 65% of the energy consumption and 70% of the energy related CO2 emissions, presently. With sustainability becoming an important issue for energy consumption, it assumes specific importance, as far as cities are concerned. Realizing this, various countries have embarked on specific initiatives to tackle this issue and implement innovative energy solutions in cities.
