Low Carbon Readiness Index (LCRI) is a three-item measure of low carbon strivings.
LCRI predicts reported low carbon behaviours, and reduction in actual energy use.
LCRI can be used to develop low carbon policies and monitor their implementation.
In October 2018, IGCC convened a workshop in Auckland to look at how to invest in climate solutions in New Zealand. This report captures the current climate finance landscape in New Zealand, some of the key insights to emerge from the workshop discussion and recommendations for next steps which IGCC will take forward.
In this report the effects of PV integration into diesel driven micro-grids was investigated. The focus was set to the fuel saving potential due to the PV integration and the resulting economics for the system.
The report starts with a summary of the most relevant technical aspects that need to be considered for the integration of PV in a diesel driven micro-grid.
Uber supports congestion pricing as a solution to urban traffic and so sponsored this white paper to explore the potential impacts of one approach to introducing tolls in Seattle. This analysis uses the best available information on regional travel patterns and the Seattle road network from local planning agencies and Uber’s own operations. While the results offer considerable insight into how congestion pricing could work in Seattle, additional analysis would help validate and extend these findings.
This document is a component of the CRC for Low Carbon Living Closing the Loop project. It provides an overview of existing data around building energy performance in Australia to guide the selection of building typologies to be included into the research. This document also outlines key stakeholders in the property sector, and major trends amongst owners and tenants.
The aim of the paper is to examine the long-term relationship between economic complexity, energy consumption structure, and greenhouse gas emission, within a panel of European Union countries and two subpanels: (i) European economies with higher economic complexity and (ii) European economies with a lower level of economic complexity.
View the Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks: 1990–2015 (published 2017), developed by the U.S. Government to meet U.S. commitments under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
This paper focuses on what a 'just transition' is, what the opportunities and challenges are for business, trade unions, government and communities and how collectively, we can govern and finance the transition to a resilient, low carbon economy.
Energy audits have been conducted for many years, and there is a well-established cohort of service providers trained to perform them in accordance with standards developed by ASHRAE and others. These standards define the process and quality of work that should be achieved for energy performance audits. However, a corresponding level of industry maturity, and an understanding of what should be included, does not yet exist for auditing water performance.
With the advantages of convenient access and free parking, urban dockless shared bikes are favored by the public. However, the irregular flow of dockless shared bikes poses a challenge for the research of flow pattern.
In this paper, the flow characteristics of dockless shared bikes are expounded through the analysis of the time series location data of ofo and mobike shared bikes in Beijing. Based on the analysis, a model called DestiFlow is proposed to describe the spatio-temporal flow of urban dockless shared bikes based on points of interest (POIs) clustering.
This book is about helping cities and towns around the world unleash their true potentials for the pursuit of resource efficiency, sustainable growth, social inclusion, investments transparency and accountability, decision-making and smart innovation.
