08 Dec 2017

Cooling Western Sydney is a Sydney Water study on the role of water and other technologies in mitigating urban heat in western Sydney.
Undertaken in collaboration with the Low Carbon Living CRC and University of New South Wales, Cooling Western Sydney draws on leading-edge tools and world renowned expertise in microclimatic research to evaluate the impact of the urban heat mitigation technologies (greenery, water and cool materials) in western Sydney.
Specifically, the project assessed the cooling potential of these mitigation technologies and evaluated their impact on energy, peak electricity demand, health, environment and thermal comfort.
