We work with a metropolitan water utility that provides water and water services for one of Australia's fastest-growing areas.
This utility's planning team are responsible for forecasting future demand for water in their service area. Population growth is a key factor in these forecasts, which are a foundation for planning across the organisation.
There is significant risk associated with each of these investment and planning decisions, so the organisation combines information from a range of sources to develop a rigorous model for forecasting future demand.
The planning team combine projections provided by the State Government with the information in forecast.id to develop a detailed and robust evidence base for planning.
forecast.id is underpinned by Residential Development Forecasts, which provide a site-level forecast of the location, timing and sequence of future residential development.
The utility has developed detailed, transparent and defendable modelling of future demand for water and sewerage services. These forecasts underpin significant decisions related to network planning, maintenance operations, pricing, and negotiations with developers.
