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.
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.
