This study evaluates the technological, economic, environmental, regulatory and social feasibility of adopting algae building technology in Sydney NSW Australia as a source of renewable energy. Interview with 23 stakeholders in the built environment illustrate the drivers and challenges associated with such technology.
The City of Sydney has engaged the Allen Consulting Group to conduct a financial and economic analysis of renewable energy opportunities for the Decentralised Energy Master Plan — Renewable Energy. This study was undertaken using research commissioned by the City of Sydney on renewable electricity...
This document provides practical guidance for built environment professionals and regulatory agencies seeking to optimise development projects to moderate urban microclimates and mitigate urban heat island effects in major urban centres across a range of climates in Australia
We're aiming to increase Greater Sydney's tree canopy to 40% by 2030 by planting more trees in streets, parks, bushland areas and yards.
That’s more trees in our streets, parks, backyards, neighbourhoods and schools, so we can grow our tree canopy from 16.8%* to...
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...
The objective of this study is to provide the City of Sydney with a comprehensive knowledge base on renewable gases - gases derived from thermo-chemical (synthetic gas) or biological conversion (biogas and landfill gas) of residual waste and biomass resources and upgraded into pipeline-quality substitute...
In April 2008, the City of Sydney released Sustainable Sydney 2030 outlining a series of large visionary projects to transform Sydney into a more sustainable, more liveable, global and connected city by 2030. Sustainable Sydney 2030 also recognised the importance of reducing the City’s carbon...
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...
This paper interrogates metropolitan strategies completed so far – SEQ (Queensland 2009); Adelaide (SA 2010); Perth (WA 2010) and Sydney (NSW 2010) – to identify how each treats the issue of climate change, and whether – and, if so, how – climate change is imagined...
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).
