Cooling Sydney Strategy: planning for Sydney 2050

This strategy provides urban overheating mitigation recommendations to support the strategic planning of Sydney 2050 based on in-depth research conducted by the Cooperative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living (CRCLCL) and the University of New South Wales (UNSW).

Preliminary design of a smart climatic road in Phillip St. Parramatta

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...

Sydney’s third city – final report

Overheating of cities is causing serious energy, environmental and health problems and it has a serious impact on the whole economic and cultural life of cities. To counterbalance the impact of high urban temperatures several mitigation technologies have been proposed, developed and implemented. Monitoring of...

A methodological framework to assess the thermal performance of green infrastructure through airborne remote sensing

This paper presents a methodological framework for a more accurate assessment of the thermal performance of green infrastructure (GI) using a combination of airborne remote sensing, field measurements and numerical modelling. The proposed framework consists of: (a) controlling intervening variables and classifying sites according to...

Mapping Local Climate Zones for urban morphology classification based on airborne remote sensing data

There is ample evidence of the cooling effects of green infrastructure (GI) that has been extensively documented in the literature. However, the study of the thermal profiles of different GI typologies requires the classification of urban sites for a meaningful comparison of results, since specific...
