Britain’s infrastructure for the 21st century

Jan 14, 2014

Abstract


Our integrated system-of-systems model (NISMOD) can simulate the long term performance of infrastructure networks in Great Britain. This analysis capability has been used to compare alternative long term strategies for infrastructure provision. In total we have examined 17 different options, to be implemented over the coming decades, under a wide range of scenarios of future demographic change, economic growth and climate change.

Britain’s infrastructure for the 21st century report presents interim results from that new analysis. Importantly, for the first time this report demonstrates how long term, cross-sectoral plans for infrastructure provision at a national scale can be mapped out and analysed.
