MS1. Analysing the performance of small scale Integrated Waste to Energy systemsBrief Description: By 2050, the population of Melbourne will grow to seven million. Unlessconsumption is reduced, overall energy demand will increase. At the same time, existing centralised energy and waste management infrastructure will be put under increasing pressure from new urban development precincts and the necessity of mitigating and adapting to climate change. To meet the needs of a growing population, the current centralised system would require both greater carrying capacity and upgrading of existing plants. This projects aims to investigate the technological, environmental and socio economic impacts of small scale waste-to-energy systems on the operation of current electrical power system.
