Using urban form to produce renewable energy in the context of reducing climate change factors
The relationship between sustainability and climate change is a clear inverse relationship, which means that if sustainable indicators in urban areas are increased, then factors of climate change will be at low levels. This paper will discuss how this relationship (in favor of reducing climate change) can be controlled using elements and components of urban form in renewable energy production, and to achieve this result, the research will use mathematical equations of renewable energy production; in parallel, the study will depend on Design Concept of Sustainable Urban Form , such as mixed land use, urban compactness, and passive solar design. This study presents a set of findings related to renewable energy production using the elements of urban form such as building mass to reach the main objective of reducing climate change factors based on sustainable urban development. Additionally, this research also aims to include the element of energy generation from the elements of urban form as one of sustainable urban form design concept element.
