The World Energy Council (WEC) has announced a new partnership with an engineering firm.
Arup will collaborate with WEC in the ‘World Energy Scenarios’ flagship study, which will be unveiled at the World Energy Congress in Istanbul in October 2016.
They will analyse how different key urban drivers will play into different energy scenarios.
The WEC said the partnership brings together the expertise of its global network of leaders and practitioners and Arup’s strong capabilities and experience within urban design from its own activities in innovation and technology.
Christoph Frei, WEC Secretary General added: “With a special focus on urban innovation, Arup will be providing perspectives and analysis on a selection of resource areas that include ongoing work on e-storage, e-mobility, energy efficiency, solar energy, waste-to-energy, energy-water-food nexus and resilience.
“With 10,000 projects going on across the globe, Arup brings a treasure box of worldwide experience and case studies to our scenarios work.”
