With the Paris Agreement on climate change, the looming Fourth Industrial Revolution, and other changes in the background, discourse on urban planning is changing rapidly. Net zero energy and smart cities are examples of it.
To achieve net zero emissions, the city will need to decarbonize heat and transport, as well as upping its renewable energy sources such as solar and wind.
Glasgow is one of only two cities in the UK to have a Low Emission Zone. London is the other. EVs are to form a large part of the decarbonization program. With over 70% of Glasgow citizens living in flats, the transition towards EVs could be tricky. Cities of the UK will have to seek government approval of going towards solar and wind sites in the future. ——————–***——————–
