Urban energy systems are attracting more and more attention owing to the challenges as well as potential to make them more sustainable. In particular, decarbonisation may be achieved by deploying a portfolio of multi-energy technologies (electricity, heat, cooling, gas, transport), for both distributed (e.g., PV, heat pumps, electric vehicles, thermal and electrical storage, etc.) and centralised (e.g., community-level or city-level energy systems supplied by cogeneration, trigeneration, etc.) applications. This calls for high resolution modelling from both temporal and spatial perspectives, suitable to capture infrastructure impact and requirements as well as intertemporal characteristics o..
