Utilizing the result of a case research at the Gare-Lac quarter within the urban of Yverdon-les-Bains – the positioning is at the moment a wide city brownfield, meant to host ca. 3,800 extra population and 1,200 jobs upon finishing touch – this paintings examines how you can layout beautiful city neighbourhoods that generate endogenous fiscal task and foster socio-cultural dynamics, whereas relocating in the direction of neighborhood power self-sufficiency.
Exploring the several dimensions influencing power self-sufficiency on the neighbourhood scale via integrating parameters with regards to constructions, infrastructure, mobility, nutrition, items and prone, the paintings specializes in 3 eventualities (technological, behavioural and symbiotic) for the long run improvement of this neighbourhood via 2035. The eventualities try varied layout concepts on the topic of business symbioses, construction, garage, transportation, and concrete agriculture.

With the entire environmental and social difficulties confronting our foodstuff structures this present day, it truly is obvious that not one of the techniques we've got trusted some time past? higher-yielding kinds, elevated irrigation, inorganic fertilizers, pest harm aid? should be counted directly to come to the rescue. in reality, those suggestions are actually a part of the matter.
There's an expanding cognizance between biophysical scientists that human habit greatly affects the measure to which sound agroecosystems are carried out. Written by means of a global staff of specialists assembled via a number one rural sociologist, Interactions among Agroecosystems and Rural groups indicates how human habit affects agroecosystems either definitely and negatively and gives an realizing of other methods of operating with human groups to extend agroecosystem sustainability.
Using the result of a case learn at the Gare-Lac region within the urban of Yverdon-les-Bains – the location is presently a wide city brownfield, meant to host ca. 3,800 extra population and 1,200 jobs upon crowning glory – this paintings examines find out how to layout appealing city neighbourhoods that generate endogenous fiscal task and foster socio-cultural dynamics, whereas relocating in the direction of neighborhood power self-sufficiency.

In general, two main levers for action can be identiﬁed: mobility (type of vehicle and international mobility) and the heating needs per resident (strongly influenced by the energy-related reference surface area per resident). These results emphasize that, from the energy point of view, the urban densiﬁcation issue is not so much a matter of built-up density but rather of the increased population density. The research also emphasises the low potential of strategies embodying a strict ideological vision of sustainable development: far from being contradictory, the technological, behavioural and symbiotic visions are complementary.
Special attention is paid to waste reduction and minimization of food packaging. The combination of these different efforts enables users in this scenario to reduce their individual consumption by 46 % compared to the average Swiss household. Fig. 3 Behavioural scenario. Visualisation of urban form. Extensive public spaces dedicated to urban agriculture also provide popular gathering places for neighbourhood residents. 6 Total primary energy (W/pers) Non renewable primary energy (W/pers) Global warming potential (kg eq.
In winter, inversely, high-efﬁciency heat pumps heat the buildings. 1 Local Resources 29 For environmental reasons, lake water exploitation is not desired by the Yverdon-les-Bains conurbation’s cantonal and communal political authorities. So, in spite of this important potential, lake water will not be considered as a thermal resource in this research. 1 Current Situation Strictly speaking, this ﬁrst stage is not a scenario. It concerns the present situation which gives an idea of the status of the neighbourhood if it were inhabited at full capacity.
