The following report presents the outcomes of the second workshop held for this project held on Tuesday the 24th September 2013 at Room BJ3-03 at the University of South Australia‟s City East Campus, Corner North Tce & Frome Rd, Adelaide from 10:00am until 4:30pm. The focus of this workshop is to follow on from the initial project workshop (CRC-LCL, 2013) and to address issues around and to establish a framework for integrated ETWW demand forecasting.
This project for the CRC for Low Carbon living is designed to develop a shared platform for integrated ETWW (energy, transport, waste and water) demand forecasting and scenario planning for ETWW under low carbon futures, focusing on gaps, synergies, alternative approaches and required research directions. It will include a series of facilitated national workshops on demand forecasting for ETWW utilities and services and on scenario generation and appraisal. The aim is to seek the development of integrated tools for demand forecasting and scenario evaluation covering ETWW with identified commonalities in data requirements and model formulation. It will first (Phase 1) develop an integrated framework for demand forecasting that will then be fully developed and implemented in Phase 2. A method for including the impacts of household behaviour change in demand forecasting will be a major component of the framework. In this way overall carbon impacts of urban developments or redevelopments can be assessed effectively and efficiently.
This report discusses a collection of the of the presentations made and associated discussions during the workshop sessions with conclusions and a synthesis of these outcomes presented for the next stages of the research progress. For each of the presentations, the folowing summaries are based on notes are taken about the speaker's presentation and not made by the speaker directly.
