Planning a new “city” requires the urban vision, the design of the infrastructures and the management of the urban services.

The design of a Development Plan for a city, such as efficient cities (or smarts), is an example that the need for an integrated planning of energy resources is mandatory. With this perspective, it becomes clear that an Energy Plan is needed to define the most suitable energy forms to meet the energy needs as well as to define the most appropriate supply systems.

The most suitable way to achieve these objectives is to establish interconnections between demand and energy supply, using more efficient technical solutions, minimizing the final energy needs to produce the same quantities and providing the final energy forms that best adapt to the economic constraints and to the environment.

Thus, in the scope of the Energy Plan, the Rational and Efficient Energy Production must be present and integrated.
