dc.description.abstractEnergy needs and demands are progressively increasing and posing a challenge facing the human race in planning and forecasting in order to meet such needs and demands of tomorrow. The Pueblo County Energy forecasting model does this using System Dynamics (SD) under a variety of simulations and scenarios. The model looks at the region's energy demand and shows the effect of different variables. This work allows decision makers to analyze the expected results of implementing certain green practices without the need to experiment in the real world which would have increased the risk of failing and spending large amounts of money. The purpose of this thesis is to develop an SD model to support a decision making process in sustainable city development.
