A large portion of the potential for energy efficiency in existing buildings and the potential to utilize solar energy still remains unused. A combination of making buildings more energyefficient – through refurbishment  interventions and new developments – and increasing the use of renewable energy sources is a key issue to reduce fossil energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, towards a low carbon energy transition. The increased use of solar energy is one of the important development paths, where the urban fabric needs to utilize passive solar gains and daylight to reduce the energy use in buildings, as well as to improve the inhabitants’ comfort in indoor and outdoor areas. In addition, active solar energy systems integrated in the urban context contribute to the production of renewable energy as heat and electricity. All these strategies help cities and citizens in reaching sustainable developments.
