This research project has developed a tool for integrated demand and carbon impact forecasting of ETWW demand at the precinct level, which supports scenario planning for alternative precinct development plans. This unique approach allows for interactions between the different demand domains and can accommodate the impacts of population changes, socioeconomic variables and household behaviour change in demand forecasting. Research efforts and the resulting tool has a focus on residential precincts in a mixed-use precinct context, providing a scientific and efficient basis for the assessment of the overall carbon impacts of urban developments or redevelopments. A broad range of demand estimates and related carbon impact estimates can be achieved at high levels of accuracy with scenarios recognising the inter-domain demand relationships that occur at a household level.
