There is concern that rising electricity prices in Western Australia have a particular impact on the standard of living for those with fixed incomes. One group thought to be particularly affected are senior citizens. This paper describes a trial that assessed the impact of SMS...
This article demonstrates that climate change is exposing and exacerbating vulnerabilities within the structure of the Wheatbelt, which, in turn, is undermining the viability of traditional modes of family farming and forcing many farmers out of the agricultural sector.
This report briefly discusses the role for renewable energy in reducing greenhouse emissions in Western Australia, including some potential interactions with emissions trading schemes. It then outlines the current policy environment for renewable energy in WA, before proposing policies to drive additional deployment. This report...

The Waterwise Council Program established in 2009 is a partnership between the Water Corporation (WA water utility) and the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation....
This paper discusses the history of urban infrastructure planning in the 20th century.
This paper demonstrates to transit proponents and practitioners how to facilitate infrastructure projects by optimizing induced and activated land-use change.
HighlightsRate of chloride ingress in fly ash based geopolymer concrete is high in aggressive environment. Geopolymer concrete shows less carbonation resistance compared to Portland cement concrete. Reinforcement bars embedded in geopolymer concrete is more prone to corrosion compared to OPC concrete.
This study investigates the durability of precast fly ash–based geopolymer concrete (GPC) exposed to an outdoor atmospheric environment for 8 years. Core specimens from GPC culverts are tested to determine the effect of carbonation, permeation properties, and poresize distribution, and the durability is compared with...
In January 2016, a two-year Low Carbon School Pilot Program (LCSPP) was developed and launched in Perth, Western Australia. A total of 15 schools participated in the pilot - 10 primary schools and five high schools from around seven different local government areas.
This report argues that the energy sector is changing rapidly globally and nationally; and that Western Australia needs a plan to navigate its way through these changes and towards a sustainable and affordable energy future.
