To achieve climate mitigation and energy supply security targets, urban energy systems will need to substantially increase their energy efficiency and handle an increasing fraction of renewable energy resources. Within a Smart City, a holistic approach is applied to achieve these targets, considering all aspects that are relevant for energy conversion, distribution, storage and end-use. After a brief introduction of the Smart Cities concept based on six main properties (adaptive, intelligent, integrated, efficient, effective and attractive), the respective implications for thermal networks are presented and the challenges and opportunities to enable the transition into a future-proof energy system are discussed.
