As new renewable energy sources will change the shape of our settlements? A moment of reflection. It 's just that what you want to propose: a moment of collective reflection, which arises spontaneously from the moment you have the awareness that the city fossil has now begun its slow decline. I would consider three elements: − the steady growth of urban population (United Nations), leading in 2030 to reside in cities over 60% of the population; − awareness of the limits of non-renewable sources of groundlessness of an economy based on the idea of unlimited growth; − the strong two-way link connecting the city and Energy: Energy is the city in fact, a mouth (F.L.Wright) whose livelihood is tied to the energy flows into and out. The whole history of the city could be reinterpreted on energy, linking the form of renewable energy use, and how to vary the latter, various consistently also the first (The Industrial Revolution - Coketowns, electricity - vertical city, Oil - horizontal city, telecommunications networks - a city of bits) (P. De Pascali). If then the whole city, in its form and function depends on the availability in the area of energy infrastructure networks and, if they have a direct impact in its spatial form, and whether the current sources have a limit last more next, leaving room for new renewable sources and its technologies, as these will change the shape of the city? Taking as a given the technological apparatus, as these help to build the new eco-town? How it will change the space, perception, models of housing? The city will host the inside taking an active role in energy production, or will have within its boundaries by creating new fields of energy? You will be able to protect the natural landscape from endless stretches of panels, or be appli policy MW? These are questions still unanswered, which leads today to a more extensive discussion. Some large international studies have begun outlined some hypotheses for future sustainable city, which resulted in the design, however, still leaves ample room for doubt as to what is really for urban sustainability, often reduced to simple incorporation of efficient buildings. Would it be possible, now try to re-read the relationship between settlement patterns and future energy sources through a new utopia which develop and resolve the relationship between new energy sources and possible urban configurations (L. Mumford ), help us to design a new “Citè post-Industrielle”?
