These pressures come from different quarters – liberalization and privatization of the markets for services, tighter environmental standards, new economic incentives, competing technologies, changing consumption patterns causing overuse or over-capacity. Achieving sustainable energy and resource use is vital if cities are to thrive or even function. The authors show, on the basis of thorough coverage of a number of European cities, how much potential improved management of infrastructure holds for the improving environmental and service quality. More efficient technology has a part to play, but the really significant improvements in quality of life will be delivered when the flow of material and energy through a city is focused on achieving these goals in each city’s local context.
