Given the robust trends towards global urbanization propensity, the energy and sustainability challenges cannot be addressed without explicit consideration of urban energy systems and their specific challenges and opportunities. A considerable amount of energy waste in the building and transport sector comes about due to inefficient development patterns as well as consumption habits. Towards steering an energy efficiency transformation in cities, it is thus crucial to develop policies, strategies and measures to improve efficiency in these sectors. Hence, not only physical but also climatic as well as socio-economic characteristics should be taken into account in development of energy efficient urban areas. The respective urban development factors - besides technological applications and organizational readiness - can support better energy performance of cities. In this respect, the present research emphasizes on identifying energy efficiency and design measures together with their integration in local urban development practices. As the focus of this study is oriented towards Social Infrastructure (SI), the findings are concentrated on and modified for planning and provision of SIs. Furthermore, besides spatial dimensions, the research briefly illustrates the recent technological transformation by analysing the possibilities and fundamental dimensions to enhance the electronic service delivery of SIs. In terms of methodology, the research investigates relevant theoretical knowledge in urban sustainability and energy efficiency and develops a comprehensive set of spatial planning and design measures to be analysed in the case study (District 22 of Tehran-Iran). The methods used to examine the local context are diverse and include : via desk research, field observations and interviews with local actors. Qualitative and quantitative analysis are utilized in the case study aiming at generating strategies and deriving recommendations for the integration of the spatial energy efficiency and design measures in planning for SIs. This is accompanied by the provision of a checklist of energy efficiency and design measures and their application in the urban planning process.
