" ... The power of this book is that it provides a good sketch of the new city: The Renewable City.

In the near future every consumer will also be able to produce energy — sustainably — from the sun, wind, waste, biomass and the like: everybody as prosumer is linked in a virtual power plant. The city becomes a renewable energy source. ... 'Renewable City' is a good book for the sharpening of the sustainable urban development debate. It also delivers a multitude of facts in compact form ..."

"This book is a magnificent resource for students, practitioners and concerned citizens. It belongs on one’s desk as a constant reference source and, in these times, not on the shelves ... The author combines an encyclopaedic knowledge with a lucid writing style that places this book in the Meadows, Carsons and Lovins class as one who can turn around mindsets but also provide a vision ahead."
