The future of the world is urban
 
Each month, 5 MILLION people are moving to cities!
 

When you consider that the world population will grows by 2 BILLION by 2040, mayors have to consider how to manage their city of the future.

How to these mega cities?
MEGACITIES: CHALLENGES FOR MAYORS, ENGINEERS AND PLANNERS (DOSSIER) 

HOW CAN WE PLAN NOW FOR MORE SUSTAINABLE WAYS OF LIFE IN A RADICALLY DIFFERENT WORLD?


Advices for megacities
(a population in excess of 10 million people)

For the first time more people live in cities than in the country side. This trend is set to intensify. Each month five million people are moving to cities. And when you consider that the world population grows by two billion the next 25 years, administrations have to consider how to manage the city of the future. 

How do we manage these metropol cities?
What can we expect in the future of green/blue healthy megacities? 

  1. SMART Buildings
    In 2020 at least 50% of buildings will be Green and Intelligent built with BIPV. 20% of the buildings will be Net Zero Buildings.
  2. SMART Technology
    In 2020 Intelligent Communication Systems will connect homes, offices, iphones, cars and connected transport systems (trains, metro's, city cars, bikes, harbor transports and airports) on a Single Wireless IT Platform.
  3. SMART, Circular Governance
    In 2020 a lot of governments will also have implemented smart planning tools and systems like a city communication system including its telecommunication infrastructure (including telephony, broadband and wireless). The ability to access and communicate information is central in a modern economy and key to a safe and secure city. Furthermore, city governance is about cheaper resources and more jobs: circular governance
  4. Smart Economy
    A city's business system encompasses its regulation and policy environment and including planning regulations, openness to foreign trade and investment, and labor and product market legislation  

In the dossier MEGACITIES, you will find solutions infrastructural planners, engineers, communicators, the mayor and her/his administration, entrepeneurs, industries and all involved residents.

 

World's renewable power capacity 2014

 

China leads the world in renewable power capacity, with the US some way behing in second place. Germany comes next, but only if hydroelectric power is excluded from the calculation. If Hydro is included, then Brazil takes the third spot.


Per capita
Things look very different when capacity is measured on a per capita basis, with the top 5 countries all in Europe: Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Spain and Portugal!

5 reasons why the green future is now:

  1. it's been proven that we can transform to renewables
  2. we can store renewable energy
  3. we can transfer to a robust and adaptable structure of power networks
  4. if we make the local energy demand more flexible
  5. decrease carbon emissions and stop  climate change
 

PLEASE REMEMBER
Solar panels can also be recycle

 

Up to 90% of a module's glass and 96% of the semiconductor material can be recovered during the recycling process. 

Waste of the aluminium frames for example can be recycled and processed into usable raw material for furniture, cell phones or again solar panel frames. The silicon cells can be recycled as raw material for new solar cells.

THIS IS WHY
Shell stopped drilling in the Arctic

 

Shell has surprised the world, ceasing the oil exploration in the Chukchi Sea above Alaska. The decision was announced last Monday at 7 am: the last day of the exploration permit in the Arctic. The decision has been made by 3 arguments:

  1. Very disappointing results of exploratory drilling
  2. Low Oil prices
  3. 'Uncertainties' from future governments and lawmakers
