iNumber will develop an urban model for buildings and municipal energy services and related tools to help cities plan for secure energy and water use. It will advance innovative research into: urban data collection (e.g. laser, infrared, and visible remote sensing), big data analytics, and 3D spatial modelling. Using these methods, iNUMBER will co-create interactive planning tools to pinpoint energy demand reductions, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, stabilise the electricity grid, and help cities alleviate poverty by providing more support and social services to poorer members of their communities.
