Theme 2 – Energy

For buildings, transportation, manufacturing, and agriculture
Heating/cooling, transportation, manufacturing, and agriculture are all major energy
consumers, and are therefore potential areas for conservation. Projects could focus on
such things as: energy sources, energy storage, natural sheltering, alternative energy
vehicles, etc. A Biosphere Eco-City might also promote manufacturing processes that
save energy or provide energy for other uses (e.g. district heating systems). In rural
areas, agricultural projects might focus on conservation (e.g. low energy cropping
systems) or supply (e.g. generation of bio-gas).
