This work deals with the application of a bottom-up and scenario-based approach to analyse the future urban energy development. For this purpose, consistent scenarios of long term socio-economic, technological and demographic developments of the considered urban area are prepared. The key development parameters focus on technology and infrastructure transformation related to EE improvement and electrification in all consumption sectors, including the shifts in mobility modes and lifestyle changes driven by financial incentives and environmental awareness. The concept systematically relates the specific energy needs for producing various services and commodities to the social, economic and technological factors that affect the demand for a particular fuel.
