Forecasting for integrated demands and carbon impacts of a precinct in the ETWW (energy, transport, waste and water) domains will allow for the assessment of policy scenarios for low carbon futures.
This CRC for Low Carbon living project has investigated gaps, synergies, alternative approaches and required research directions to achieve its goals. 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. As a result of facilitated national workshops to date, researchers, project partners and industry interests have explored initial project issues, and established an approach for integrated ETWW demand forecasting and model specification, development and integration.
The following report presents the outcomes of a fifth workshop associated with this project, held at Flinders University's Tonsley Campus on Thursday 20th August 2015. Workshop 5 has provided key researchers and interested partied the opportunity to present updates of recent research progress and current research status and discuss issues related to data specification, collection and use across domains, forecast application including the development of a foundation model and scenario application and future directions for the research. 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 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
Rapid global urbanization and the increase of the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect make urban cooling a necessity as well as an opportunity to increase the liveability and amenity of cities. This review is a scoping study of the relevant worldwide UHI mitigation/adaptation...Read more
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 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.
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.
