Description

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. As a result of the project’s facilitated national workshops to date (with reports communicated through the CRCLCL’s website), 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. In some cases, mature and well-researched models are utilised in forecasting routines and in other cases, new approaches have been developed.

A focus of all modelling is on the household, however other land uses and activities that exists within a precinct are recognised and accommodated. The following report presents the outcomes of a sixth workshop associated with this project, hosted by Flinders University on 12th February 2016 at Flinders’ Tonsley campus, presenting 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.
