To implement actions to reduce the negative effects of carbon-based energy consumption calls for a good method of measuring that energy.
Prior research has always considered urban buildings and transport energy costs separately.
A combined energy use metric is developed at a large scale to provide better understanding of energy consumption patterns.
Because commuting plays such a substantial role in energy demand, the results show a direct relationship between lower per capita energy consumption and urbanised areas, demonstrating how energy efficient urban living is.
