UBASE – Urban Benchmarking Action For Sustainable Energy
2021 - ongoing
The UBASE project is a novel partnership which aims to transform our understanding of the Indian urban landscape. UCL and CEPT University are working with Delhivery, India’s leading full-service logistics provider, to apply address disambiguation to geolocate ~1 million addresses in Ahmedabad’s municipal property tax records. This data will be linked with the iNUMBER ultra-high resolution 3D model of the city to allow classification of the urban building stock by floor area, use type and age, as well as modelled energy consumption. In parallel, we are working with COL.EAD to develop a graduated energy use benchmarking system to identify and prioritise critical decarbonisation pathways for Ahmedabad. Bentley Systems is a technology partner for the project.
