Energy Sustainbility in Urban Enviroments


Extreme weather events increasingly affect all parts of the energy system. The most important changes include an increase in average and extreme air and water temperatures, changes in available water quantities, flood hazards and other hazards related to the consequences of climate change. Such changes will affect the availability of primary energy sources, especially renewable energy sources, as well as the conversion, transmission or transport, distribution and storage of energy and the demand for energy. Our use and production of energy have a huge impact on the climate, but the impact in the opposite direction is also increasingly evident. Climate change can alter our potential for energy production and our energy needs. The global problems we face are lack of energy, insufficient security and energy supply, environmental pollution and climate change. In order to reduce the emission of negative impacts on the environment and encourage sustainable development, it is important to achieve energy sustainability. It is aimed at reducing the use of non-renewable energy sources and increasing the share of renewable energy sources. The term energy efficiency refers to a series of plans and measures aimed at using the minimum amount of energy while maintaining the same quality and efficiency. This means that by increasing energy efficiency, the same quality of work is achieved, but with less energy use.




Students will analyze the city as an organized system, investigate the causes of temperature differences in the city and propose ways and measures of sustainable development of cities.
With the help of visual content, students will indicate which gas makes up the largest proportion of greenhouse gases and justify their answer. With the help of a diagram, they will indicate which activities have the greatest influence on the increase in the concentration of greenhouse gases, as well as which EU countries are the largest producers of greenhouse gases, and they will compare the data with the largest producers in the world. Students will learn about the consequences of climate change in energy by analyzing the diagram of energy sources in Croatia and determining which energy sources have an increasing trend. He will state the positive consequences of climate change on the energy system.
