UK Government on Sustainable Energy Management and the Built Environment

The UK Government is sponsoring the Foresight programme . This previously looked at Intelligent Infrastructure Systems (including transport). A new part is looking at Sustainable Energy Management and the Built Environment, including a Mini Energy Project. The reports are available free on line:

Project Overview 864kb
This report sets out the key findings of the project, including the choices we are faced with and the possible consequences of developing IIS

The Scenarios - Towards 2055 1618kb
This report describes the four scenarios and related 'systems maps' that were developed to investigate how science and technology might be applied to infrastructure over the next 50 years.

Scenarios Toward 2055 – Perspective and Process 1788kb
A commentary on the scenarios covering environment, social, crime and economic perspectives and a description of the process used to develop the scenarios

Technology Forward Look - Towards a Cyber Urban Ecology 1128kb
This report reviews current road maps for the development and application of the technology, and considers what future technological capabilities might be possible or required

Next Steps 570kb
The Next Steps sets out how stakeholders from across and outside Government will respond to the findings of the project.

The place of social science in examining the future of transport 231kb
This paper explores the social and behavioural context of how transport shapes society and is, in turn, shaped by it.

Intelligent Charging: Smart Market Protocols for Road Transport 497kb
Applying agent-based modelling to investigate a possible congestion solving technology.

Port Traffic Modelling 163kb
A theoretical study which looks at an idealised redistribution of port traffic to investigate the potential impact on road freight.
