Rapid urbanization poses multiple environmental and social risks. More than half of the world’s population lives in cities today, and cities account for two-thirds of global energy demand and around seventy percent of global CO2 emissions. Energy management in urban agglomerations becomes a strategic factor in the process of decarbonization of global economy. Digitization offers some revolutionary solutions for sustainable energy transition and enhancing energy efficiency. The most important concepts are Smart City, Smart Grid and Smart House. The general objective of the present research is to verify if new technologies, promoted by digitization, could remedy the negative impact of urbanization on the environment and to estimate how significant their contribution could be.
