For communities to be considered sustainable do they need to be powered by renewable resources?

    Yes. If a community is to be sustained it must be run upon resources which aren’t finite. Since renewable resources are renewable, generated over and over,  they are an integral part of economically sustainable communities.

    It seems that if a community was 100% “sustainable” in everything besides energy, it would still be considered sustainable, yes, although of course using renewable energy would it be considered even more sustainable.  Communities can pursue of range of things like recycling, using public transportation, minimizing impact on the land, saving energy, reducing waste and water consumption, etc. etc. that would help it be considered sustainable.
