Our infrastructure transverses scales. From a United Kingdom that is reliant on the world to towns and cities reliant on boroughs and counties. Infrastructure operating at these scales can be mutually dependent and reliant on external factors. This seminar will present examples of where strategic and detailed evidence bases are being prepared to develop integrated plans.
Ed Byers (University of Oxford) will introduce modelling the water footprint of the UK electricity system, from the catchment to the national scale, describing how this fits into the national infrastructure ‘system of systems’ model of the Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium. Adam Cambridge (Atkins) will discuss techniques that are being used to develop integrated asset management plans and sustainable urban water solutions.
