Estimation of the demand of an urban precinct, related to Electricity, Transport, Waste and Water (ETWW), is a necessary step toward the delivery of quality living environments where daily activities can be conducted in a sustainable manner.
Demand estimation for services and facilities is an important component of urban development, being required for the determination of the level of provision and coverage of infrastructure and related facilities to serve the needs of present and future populations. Demands and associated cabin impacts for the domains of energy, transport, waste and water (ETWW) are significant to planning agencies, infrastructure providers and operators and private developers who all need to deliver services and resources to urban precincts.
This paper outlines an on-going interdisciplinary research project entitled “Integrated ETWW demand forecasting and scenario planning for low-carbon precincts” and reports on first findings and a literature review.
Impact Pathways represent specific areas of impact that CRCLCL expects to have in transforming the low carbon built environment. Our projects and activities translate across eight impact pathways, which are linked to our three integrated research programs; Integrated Building Systems, Low Carbon Precincts and Engaged Communities.
This is a summary of the workshop presentations, discussions and of the workgroup sessions for the CRCLCL’s project on ETWW conducted Friday 1st February 2013, 10:00 – 16:30 at Room C4-16 at the University of South Australia’s City East Campus, chaired by Liz Ampt. The first of these facilitated national workshops on demand forecasting invited representatives from the project partner organisations with presentations from a selection of these as well as CRCLCL and project leaders.
The following report presents the outcomes of the second workshop held for this project held on Tuesday the 24th September 2013 at Room BJ3-03 at the University of South Australia‟s City East Campus, Corner North Tce & Frome Rd, Adelaide from 10:00am until 4:30pm. The focus of this workshop is to follow on from the initial project workshop (CRC-LCL, 2013) and to address issues around and to establish a framework for integrated ETWW demand forecasting.
The following report presents the outcomes of the third workshop associated with this project, held at the University of South Australia’s Mawson Lakes Campus, University Boulevard, Mawson Lakes, South Australia on Thursday the 15th of May 2014 at Room X1-03 at from 10:00am until 4:00pm.
The focus of this workshop is to follow on from the second ETWW project workshop (Holyoak, 2014), focusing on model specification, development and integration for integrated ETWW demand forecasting.
