چکیده: 
Understanding the drivers of energy and material flows of cities is important for
addressing global environmental challenges. Accessing, sharing and managing
energy and material resources is particularly critical for megacities, which face
enormous social stresses due to their sheer size and complexity. Here we
determine the energy and material flows through the world's 27 megacities, with
populations over 10 million as of 2010. Correlations are established for electricity
consumption, heating and industrial fuel use, water consumption, waste generation
and steel production in terms of climate, urban form, economic activity and
population growth. The results help to identify megacities exhibiting high and low
levels of consumption, and those making efficient use of resources. Collectively the
resource flows through megacities are largely consistent with scaling laws
established in the emerging science of cities.
