Harnessing and transporting energy in whatever form will have an environmental impact, so the lower the energy use, the better. We should consider options to drastically reduce the energy needs, and debate what kind of energy systems would be most efficient and have the lowest environmental impact. This topic is closely linked with other topics (transportation, manufacturing, built environment, etc). Within this page, we look at how energy can be best harnessed and transported and in the other sections we focus on how energy use can be minimized.
Questions to take into account:
- How much energy can be realistically made available per capita, while still staying within the restrictions of the Untraceable City?
- How does the location affect the energy potential?
- Not only does energy generation need to work with primarily compostable materials, but the same applies for energy transmission and storage. What technologies are available?
- Are mini grids more feasible than central energy production? What factors come into play?
Ideas and resources
We are looking for ideas and resources in the field of Energy that may enable a city to adhere to the Triple 95 rule. Please help out!
