meters where compatible. However, there is currently a lack of full end-to-end metering services for the SME market. The smaller service providers tend to specialise in either data collection or meter installation and sometimes form strategic alliances with companies providing complementary services. In light of the significant savings achievable through metering, it is essential that the potential benefits of advanced metering is widely understood. There is also a need to stimulate market demand by developing case studies that demonstrate the reduction in energy consumption and costs made possible using this technology. Also, steps to introduce a mandatory roll out of advanced meters for SMEs will ensure that a significant cost effective carbon saving opportunity is not missed.

they share common infrastructure as well as take advantage of each others' waste energy and materials. For instance, a bio-ethanol factory can be located next to a gas-fired power station and use the latter's surplus heat for its production process, a fertilizer factory can use the sulphur from an oil refinery, and so on. This means a more effective use of materials and energy. So, Industrial symbiosis (IS) basically imitates nature's collaborative solutions. In recent years, IS has captured the attention of scholars, planners and industrial actors as a new path towards achieving more sustainable industrial systems, and offer new opportunities to combine environmental improvement, economic development and local regeneration through the construction of eco-industrial parks. Though there are many self–organized, successful, and documented cases of IS evolved out of market coordination, increased public policies and planning might deliver better results for its future development. Globalization, miniaturization, and resource scarcity will all play roles in the future development of IS.

With increased communication on the part of industry and some enabling and coordinating on the part of the authorities, there are good opportunities for more companies to develop more symbiotic relationships – to the benefit of the environment, the climate, and themselves. In this issue of energyη manager , we introduce eight articles focusing on the development of IS around the world. These articles also give focus on the social, cultural and economic dimensions of IS while discussing their significance in making progress in the transition towards a more sustainable global society. We hope our readers, majority are policy makers, industry managers and academia, will find the information contained in this special issue of energyη manager handy and will provide outline avenues and innovative ideas to participate and contribute to the development of IS, that will potentially ensure progress in Industrial Symbiosis.
