Abstract

Energy sustainability is a priority for each city and contributes to the development and improves the quality of life for human; also energy sustainability has an emphasis on environmental conservation remarkably. Without doubt, applying an appropriate indicator is an effective factor to achieve energy sustainability in urban areas and is a useful tool for policymakers and energy experts. The metropolitan areas have importance for all our and energy supply, and energy consumption in these areas is a crucial issue. The primary purpose of present this study is exploring, investigating and selecting feasible indicators to achieve energy sustainability in urban areas. Analysis of city energy sustainability development index (CESDI) in this research has presented that effect on the urban quality and contribute to enhancing the quality of life for its inhabitants. As a result, the study shows that using proper indicators in a specified framework with good planning and appropriate policies leads to energy sustainability in urban areas.
