However, the impacts of local planning policies, such as increasing density and changing the housing type mix, on residential energy consumption are not well understood.

Results show that while housing size matters for space conditioning, housing type has a more nuanced impact. Self-reported neighborhood density does not seem to have any impact on energy use. Furthermore, [...]
