About the CLUES Project
The CLUES Project critically assessed the development of
decentralised energy systems in urban areas in the light of national
decarbonisation and urban sustainability goals. Based upon national and
international reviews, it examined the range and types of urban energy
systems that have been and might have been installed.
It further considered the issues
raised by the need for such initiatives to integrate with energy
systems at urban level in the UK, regional and national scales in order
to deliver energy and carbon reductions to 2050 effectively.
