Time and Space in Intersectoral Urban Smart Energy Transitions

Urban energy systems are currently challenged not only due to decarbonisation agendas but also by an increasing coupling of infrastructure sectors in the course of smart city or smart energy visions. This ongoing transition of urban energy systems leads to technological substitutions on the one hand, but on the other hand also to severe social changes (e.g. the organisational, institutional and economic structure of the energy sector). The temporal and spatial dynamics and alignment challenges which these socio-technical changes bring about, have not been investigated thoroughly yet. Therefore, this PhD project investigates temporal and spatial relations in urban energy systems due to an increasing intersectoral coupling with a socio-technical perspective. Additionally, the impact these changes have on the vulnerability and resilience of urban energy systems are analysed.
