Presenting in-depth information on the role of spatial planning as a driver for change in residential energy consumption at the local/neighbourhood level, this book provides readers with novel insights into the potential offered by local-level efforts and the value of pursuing an integrated approach that combines transportation and building energy consumption in a holistic framework. Orientated on the future development of research and practice in the field of sustainable urban planning, including (sub-) urban renewal, the development/retrofitting of sustainable neighbourhoods and their integration as a part of “smart cities”, the book utilizes an in-depth case study of the Walloon territory to highlight suburban renewal at the local/neighbourhood level and serve as an example of the move towards sustainability in built environments. Suitable for researchers and students in urban planning, architecture or the engineering sciences, as well as local actors – who will find key insights into the relationships between spatial planning and energy consumption, as well as recommendations to inform the development of local policies aimed at improving and managing the energy efficiency of existing neighbourhoods and territories – the book both examines current trends (favouring compact cities, etc.) and sparks new discourses in both building and transportation energy consumption and promoting interdisciplinary knowledge transfer on sustainable urban forms.
