Despite covering less than 2% of the earth’s surface, cities significantly contribute to climate change, consuming a staggering 78% of the world's energy and generating over 60% of greenhouse gas emissions. By 2050, an additional 2.5 billion people will call urban areas their home, further exacerbating the challenge. Cities require rapid and far-reaching transitions in uses of energy, land, urban, and infrastructure, including transport and buildings.

Arcadis supports urban and regional clients in their shift towards local, low-carbon, and renewable energy sources, as well as sustainable mobility solutions. Our expertise encompasses energy demand reduction, storage, distribution, planning electric vehicle infrastructure, and advising on the transition to sustainable energy solutions like electricity, heating, and cooling.

Through our comprehensive understanding of urban energy systems, we take an integrated approach, developing spatial energy strategies, smart networks, and efficient planning and design to optimize energy efficiency. By incorporating electric vehicles and promoting alternative fuels, we help organizations reduce emissions, improve air quality, and create environmentally friendly and livable cities.
