Modelling and analysis
For over ten years we have been evaluating energy and water savings achieved by households and businesses as a result of government energy and water saving programs. In particular, we have extensive experience in detailed, large-scale statistical modelling. We conduct cost benefit analyses of water and energy program and develop integrated supply models for urban water.
Developers have commissioned us to recommend options for reducing energy use, water us, solid waste and greenhouse gas emissions which require detailed modelling of site energy and water use.
Modelling and analysis in the transport sector by the Institute researchers has included work on induced traffic growth.
We are continually expanding the modelling and analysis tools we use and these now include Visual Basic Arc GIS and SQL as well as Excel.
