A fast track analysis of ICT constraints on evolving physical infrastructure

Oct 10, 2011

Abstract

This technical report investigates whether Information Technology and Communication (ICT) is likely to inhibit the development of physical infrastructures (energy, transport, water and waste). A brief overview of the current/future status of ICT infrastructure is provided, followed by a discussion of key issues and future risks. The report constitutes one input to a “Fast Track Analysis” being prepared by the Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium (ITRC).

A fast track analysis of ICT constraints on evolving physical infrastructure. ITRC Working paper, October 2011.
