This project seeks to answer the following research questions:
- To what extent do urban form, publicrealm, and mitigation technologieshelp reduce urban heat island effectsand peak electricity demand?
- How does the solar photovoltaic (PV)affect urban heat island effects (UHI)?
- How does waste heat from airconditioning (A/C) units affect urbanheat island effects (UHI)?
- What are the recommendations toachieve energy efficient and resilientsuburbs?
