Seeking models – existing zero emissions cities

Posted in Models, Seeking by Ferne Edwards on June 3rd, 2007

“Seeking” is a new category resulting from the recent Sustainable Cities Round Table. Sustainable Melbourne welcomes people to post their requests for resources, research or networks to further their local environmental initiatives.

I would like examples and expertise on how to get to a zero emissions city. Where the city is existing, not new like Dongtan.
Areas like:
Efficient use of energy
Adaptation to climate change

Carbon sequestration
o “off-sets” NOT geo-sequestration
Renewable energy supply
o Distribution and “feed stock”
