Reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHGE) in urban energy systems requires the implementation of alternative infrastructure configurations across different geographical, technical and social scales. Furthermore, alternative configurations may improve systems resilience and democratization of service provision.

The intensification of development that is required in established and occupied inner and middle suburban greyfield areas (retrofit) is the great challenge for our fast-growing Australian cities. The scale of urban regeneration required over the next 30 years has the potential to reduce carbon emissions, improve housing affordability and reduce urban sprawl.

Cities across the globe are faced with combined issues associated with large-scale population growth, transportation system change, and re-configuration of urban form in the areas of housing, transport and industry. Research has demonstrated that the design of cities directly affects population health and is also positively associated with levels of population productivity.
