The present study is aiming to pre-design and optimize a smart climatic street in Parramatta, named Phillip st., exhibiting high climatic, environmental, and energy performance.
The specific objective of the study is to propose, investigate, and optimize the combination of advanced thermal mitigation and smart technologies to improve thermal comfort and mitigate the urban overheating in the area.
To satisfy the above described objective, the whole study involves the following research phases:
- Phase 1: Aerial monitoring of the surface temperatures using drone technologies. Use of the mobile Energy Bus to measure the temperature distribution in the whole area.
- Phase 2: Identification of the climatic conditions and hot spots in the area and development of preliminary mitigation scenarios.
- Phase 3: Preliminary climatic evaluation of the proposed mitigation scenarios and final selection of the technologies and systems to be implemented.
- Phase 4: Detailed thermal study and optimization of the proposed mitigation scenarios.
