Contains a model for estimating the cost-effectiveness of rainwater tanks in South East Queensland (SEQ) covering the regions of Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Sunshine Coast, Ipswich and the Gold Coast. Thi... mores model runs in the @RISK software package (an application for Microsoft Excel), which uses Monte Carlo simulation to generate a probability distribution of the cost-effectiveness and to undertake sensitivity analysis.
The input variables draw upon recent research in the Urban Water Security Research Alliance which provided data about variables of cost and yield for rainwater tanks in the region. Input variables include:
Capital costs (rainwater tank, the pump, laying of a concrete slab for the tank to rest upon as well as plumbing and installation of both the tank and the pump);
Annual costs (operating costs such as energy use for the pump, maintenance costs such as desludging as well as replacement cycles for pumps and tanks over the period of analysis);
Yield variables (household demand and end use, connected roof area, rainfall pattern as well as the effect of up-scaling from a single rainwater tank to consider the yield of a large number of tanks).

Vocabularies for describing properties relating to water and energy supply and consumption expressed using Simple Knowledge Organisation Language (SKOS) and RDF. This set of vocabularies include land ... moreuse definitions, commodities, notions of supply and consumption for water and energy (gas and electricity). The SKOS/RDF representation of these vocabularies have been produced by CSIRO and is currently managed and updated by CSIRO. Content has been taken from the urban research group within CSIRO as well as the Australian Valuation Property Classification Codes work (http://www.dtpli.vic.gov.au/property-and-land-titles/valuation/council-valuations/revaluation-2014). This set of vocabulary definitions form supporting components for the WESC data standard (http://wescml.org).less
