Apr 9, 2021 NZEB Knowledge Series Webinar – Developing Urban Energy Models for Indian Cities: A case study of Ahmedabad
Urban energy models (UEM) are critical data driven tools that support energy efficient climate resilient city planning and its operations. They also play a distinct role in accessing decentralized renewable energy generation potential within a city which in turn helps design and operate net zero neighborhoods. The development of UEMs depend upon the range of spatial and semantic details of the buildings, neighbourhoods and cities, UEM refers to the computational modelling and simulation of a group of buildings along with associated urban infrastructure.
The webinar brought on board Prof. Rajan Rawal, Executive Director CARBSE who explained in depth the concept of urban energy models, methods and generic tools used for UEMs, and the work undertaken for the city of Ahmedabad.
