Exploring the residential water-energy nexus in remote regions: results from a Far North Queensland water end-use pilot study
MetadataShow full item record
This research was undertaken as part of a collaboration between the Queensland Department of Energy and Water Supply, Queensland Department of Local Government, Community Recovery and Resilience, Cook Shire Council, Wujal Wujal Aboriginal Shire Council and Griffith University. The main aim of the project was to undertake a pilot study to provide some preliminary knowledge of water consumption patterns in remote Queensland towns, and to compare rated versus non-rated communities. This pilot study of ten Far North Queensland homes (n=5 in Wujal Wujal and n=5 in Cooktown) has, for the first time, revealed some specific patterns of residential water end-use in these remote regions.
