Investigating potential changes in infrastructure operation towards resource-efficient service delivery.
Installation, management, and maintenance of disparate utility systems has created a very complex network of infrastructure. How could this be simplified?
Analysing climate-related changes in the reliability of the UK’s electricity system and developing tools to quantify the value of adaptations.
A project to evaluate the resilience of low carbon infrastructure transitions to material supply risks.
Studying infrastructure shocks using medical allegories to understand infrastructure as a system of systems, and discover higher level integrated interventions.
ARIES aims to deliver a comprehensive risk framework to assess and manage UK energy system resilience to climate change.
Providing evidence and guidance to aid adaptation to the consequences of climate change at the coast, enhancing the resilience of coastal energy supply.
Enabling integration of systems across scales to create policies and planning driven by efficient transport, use of land as a resource, using waste as an asset, micro-generation of energy and up-scaling systems management from a local/city to regional level.
ITRC has developed a new generation of system simulation models and methods to inform analysis, planning and design of national infrastructure in the energy, transport, water, waste and telecoms sectors.
Developing the ability to overcome the separation between the “what” and “how” of urban-scale retrofitting to promote a managed socio-technical transition in built environment and urban infrastructure.
