Towards Plus-energy Urban Development as an Alternative Way to Reduce Energy Scarcity in Developing Countries

PhD project by Rehnuma Parveen

Rehnuma, an academic and architect from Bangladesh, has a profound interest in sustainable building and urban development in developing countries. In her PhD research she intends to find out the possibilities, opportunities, challenges and ways to initiate and promote plus – energy urban development where buildings are independent from energy plants and can generate energy on their own in the context of Dhaka, Bangladesh. The aim of this research is to search for an alternative and integrated urban and energy development pattern, which is appropriate to the contexts of a developing country.
