Developed and administered by the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ICSA), the ‘IS Tool’ is designed to be used to evaluate the sustainability of infrastructure across design, construction, and operational phases. The tool can be used as part of a self- assessment as well as...
This study examines patterns of electricity use by Sydney households who have installed solar PV technology compared to those who have not in order to identify whether conservation or rebound effects are associated with domestic photovoltaics. A rebound effect exists when expected energy (and carbon)...
Precinct Information Modelling (PIM) describes the process of creating a 3D digital model at the scale of a precinct, defined as any area of the built environment that is of interest for some practical purpose. As such, it describes an activity where all the information...
The aim of this project is to develop and trial a prototype low-carbon precinct co-benefits calculator for use by urban planners and designers. The calculator will estimate co-benefits associated with a range of alternative precinct designs and transport/land use configurations across health, productivity, and pollution...

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.
Significant advances have been made over the past decade in the development of scientifically and industry accepted tools for the performance assessment of buildings in terms of energy, carbon, water, indoor environment quality etc. For resilient, sustainable low carbon urban development...
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.
Demand for medium density housing in cities will continue. Redevelopment at the precinct scale allows for innovative, sustainable design.
This video introduces CRCLCL's projects exploring new instruments to engage stakeholders in redeveloping sustainable neighbourhoods.
