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.
This report presents the key outcomes of the workshop, summarising discussions during workshop sessions with conclusions and a synthesis of these outcomes presented for the next stages of the research progress. The development of a shared platform for integrated ETWW (energy, transport, waste and water) demand forecasting and scenario planning will allow for the assessment of the carbon impacts and beyond under policy scenarios such as low carbon futures. This CRC for Low Carbon living project will focus on gaps, synergies, alternative approaches and required research directions to achieve its goals. It will include a series of facilitated national workshops on demand forecasting for ETWW utilities and services and on scenario generation and appraisal. The aim is to seek the development of integrated tools for demand forecasting and scenario evaluation covering ETWW with identified commonalities in data requirements and model formulation. It will first (Phase 1) develop an integrated framework for demand forecasting that will then be fully developed and implemented in Phase 2. A method for including the impacts of household behaviour change in demand forecasting will be a major component of the framework. In this way overall carbon impacts of urban developments or redevelopments can be assessed effectively and efficiently.
With regard to separation of food scraps for composting, this research identified that there are two important aspects often overlooked when the focus is only on behaviour: 1. Policy makers need to ensure that there are socio-technical systems supporting diverse groups of people...Read more
The 2020s are predicted to be a decade of transformation for urban mobility. There are at least six forces that are expected to disrupt the urban mobility landscape. From self-driving vehicles and the sharing economy, through to vehicle electrification, mobile computing, the...Read more
Research showed that one-quarter of Sydney respondents were open to consolidating property for sale with neighbours. However, consolidated lot sales are not part of the business model of most real estate agencies, local government, or property developers. It’s an area where the...Read more
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.
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.
