The main aim of this Research Topic is to provide an opportunity for researchers to publish their most recent original work on approaches, challenges, and opportunities of energy flow in the cities of the future. It is proposed that the papers will particularly address, through different approaches, the following issues on energy demand and energy resources in future cities:
• Methods, tools and modelling approaches. Here the papers may present multidisciplinary methods, using either qualitative or quantitative approaches as well as exploring the synergy between qualitative and quantitative approaches. We also welcome other topics in this category, such as discussions of new tools and modelling approaches for analyzing and predicting energy demand and energy resources, as well as urban energy systems including model complexity, data quality, and uncertainty.
• This Research Topic explores contributions on energy demand and energy resources in future cities. Energy demand covers energy use in buildings, energy performance of buildings, retrofitting of existing buildings, links between architectural design, mechanical and lighting systems, as well as energy-efficient buildings and urban forms. Energy resources cover biomass, photovoltaic technology, solar thermal applications, wind and geothermal energy, and socio-economic and policy issues related to energy resources. Innovative works concerning climate adaptability of buildings, urban heat island effects, urban micro-climate and their relation with energy demand and resources are also suitable.
• Multi-scaling. To broaden the scope, we would like to focus not only on the building and neighborhood scale but also urban and regional scale. Innovative contributions dealing with spatial and temporal scales are also welcome.


Keywords: Energy demand, energy resources, urban energy system, energy flow
