Urban Energy Solutions

As cities expand, so does the demand for energy – and the need for the most efficient methods of generation, distribution and storage. Changes in the way people and industries use energy are putting pressure on cities themselves, as well as the wider environment.

Energy is the dominant contributor to climate change, accounting for around 60% of total global greenhouse gas emissions. As we address the climate crisis, particularly following the stark warnings in the latest IPCC report, sustainable and renewable urban energy solutions have never been more critical.

While it’s fantastic that organisations are taking carbon reduction seriously, often great initiatives can be implemented in isolation when infrastructure, by its very nature, should be looked at in its entirety. Sweco has the benefit of world-leading expertise across multi-engineering and design disciplines.

Our Urban Energy Solutions team has been created to harness all of this expertise in one place and harmonise the various strands of sustainability strategies.
