Abstract

This paper presents the ongoing research on the development of a total life cycle and near real time environmental assessment. Over 30 widely used sustainability assessment tools have been reviewed. This is done through investigating different characteristics of each tools namely: locality, scale, life cycle stage implementation, chosen criteria, chosen weighting system; and the definition of common patterns and issues. Additionally, forecasting models applied for power and energy consumption have been reviewed with around 120 applications spread into 46 papers. Forecasting applications are compared in order to define particular pattern. The methodology of the future application is presented in this paper as well. The methodology and technical approach used in the new neighbourhood environmental assessment framework is described. Cardiff Urban Sustainability Platform (CUSP), base for the development of this project, is presented with a brief overview of its main features and its ongoing application on the city of Ebbw Vale.
