Their formations are directly related to the building arrangement and road networks, which are factors that are directly determined by the ministry of urban planning and development. This research work is designed to establish the relative magnitudes of energy consumption in buildings in comparison to transportation network, with a clear knowledge that points out the relationships between buildings and transportation in the context of climate change and social inclination in cities. The main objective of the paper is to examine the energy trends and implications of urbanization by making reference to building density and proffer strategic solutions.
