The intensification of development that is required in established and occupied inner and middle suburban greyfield areas (retrofit) is the great challenge for our fast-growing Australian cities. The scale of urban regeneration required over the next 30 years has the potential to reduce carbon emissions,...
This guide has been developed to help speed a transition to sustainable urban development in two key environmental domains related to resource consumption and greenhouse gas emissions for Australia’s cities.
The Precinct Carbon Assessment (PCA) Tool was developed at the University of South Australia as part of the Integrated Carbon Metrics Project (RP2007). The main focus of the PCA tool is to examine the whole life cycle of carbon emissions (Scope 1, 2 and 3)...
The structure of this report is based on the CRCLCL RP3033 project activities which included:Performance modelling to ascertain the operational energy and carbon emission profiles for the different dwelling typologies at WGV. Life Cycle Analysis of a selection of dwellings in the precinct...
This document is a resource for anyone planning or assessing new low carbon precincts. Its advice complements existing policy and may be of use to developers, planners, policy makers and the community—anyone who is seeking to understand how to create sustainable urban outcomes.
In Australia, various City Councils, including the City of Adelaide, are pursuing carbon neutrality at municipal-scale based on their operational greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. As passenger transport is a major component of city operational GHG emissions, there is an opportunity for shared mobility services to...
This book focuses on the challenge that Australia faces in transitioning to renewable energy and regenerating its cities via a transformation of its built environment. It identifies innovative and effective pathways for decarbonising the built environment from applied research undertaken by the Co-Operative Research Centre...
