3 ways cities can overcome barriers to energy efficiency

Almost 70 percent of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050. Some of the most rapid growth is taking place in areas least equipped to absorb the influx. This necessarily spurs infrastructural development, the efficiency or inefficiency of which is largely locked in for the useful life of the project. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), building efficiency has the greatest greenhouse gas emissions savings potential for the lowest cost. As such, cities have a major role to play in climate change mitigation and adaptation.
