Cities and Energy: Urban Morphology and Heat Energy Demand

27 March 2014

LSE Cities has published a new report and paper on the impact of urban morphology on heat energy demand in cities in collaboration with the European Institute for Energy Research (EIFER) at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

The research report ‘Cities and Energy: Urban Morphology and Heat Energy Demand’ focuses on heat energy efficiencies created by the spatial configuration of cities and is based on the identification of the five most dominant residential building typologies in each of the four largest European cities: London, Paris, Berlin and Istanbul. The paper, authored by Philipp Rode, Christian Keim, Guido Robazza, Pablo Viejo and James Schofield, presents the overall methodology and findings and is published under the same title in Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design 41(1) 138 – 162.
