Traveler in city street in hanoi 2021 08 27 19 13 23 utcAs a stroll down Tel Aviv’s Ben-Yehuda Street at the height of summer quite clearly demonstrates, our cities are stiflingly hot: lack of shade, ACs spewing hot air on the sidewalks and no breeze make walking outside come August somewhat of a nightmare.

And with urbanization processes, heat islands and global warming, things are likely to get worse.

This is where technology comes in. From buildings that generate their own energy and green walls to smart shade solutions and solar energy storage, there’s plenty to be done to make our cities more bearable in hot weather.
