PACT – Pathways for Carbon Transitions
For further information, please visit the project website.
*Funded by the European Commission
The project focuses on:
- what shapes the energy demand, and how this should evolve towards post-carbon concept, from two viewpoints: infrastructures, in relation to urbanisation and land-use schemes, and life-styles and behaviours, in relation to technologies that should be available.
- the relations of urbanisation and land-use from the renewable energy perspective, including that of the systems (centralised/dependence versus decentralised/autonomous).
- the role of social forces, actors, stakeholders in the transition process toward this post-carbon concept.
The ultimate objective is to complement these analytical components with an attempt to quantify scenarios of post-carbon societies, at the world level.
- Organisation of a DELPHI survey and two workshops involving city planning experts to envision different post-carbon city forms in a long-term perspective (2050)
