Peak Oil Vulnerability Assessment for Dunedin

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This report to the Dunedin City Council is a research and engineering-based analysis of Dunedin’s vulnerability to Peak Oil. The report identifies how the Council’s sustainability framework objectives can be achieved while addressing the issue of declining world oil supply and high fuel price. A strategic analysis process was used together with new modelling capabilities, data analysis and surveys of residents and businesses. The key recommendation is that the city’s urban form and transport infrastructure could be enhanced to provide adaptive capacity and resilience in household travel behaviour, while supporting local business and enterprise development.
