Abstract

Access, renewables, and efficiency have been emphasized for energy in the context of sustainable development goals. In addition, it is also important to take into consideration the dimension of resilience in energy systems. Possible measures include increasing the redundancy and diversity of the components of a system, introducing modularity in the system, and promoting distributed and decentralized systems of producing, transmitting, and utilizing energy. Novel energy technologies, notably electric vehicles and smart grids, which have been rapidly developed and adopted in industrialized countries and increasingly in emerging countries, are expected to improve the resilience of energy systems, in addition to contributing to securing access to energy for all, improving energy efficiency, and promoting renewable energies. Collaboration with stakeholders involving academia, industry, and the public sector will be particularly important to stimulate innovation on smart cities for sustainability across the globe.
