Impact of disruptive technologies on integrated infrastructure systems


Novel techniques are developed and applied to assess the impacts of transformative and disruptive technologies on infrastructure elements, individually and jointly.  

Project examples:

  • Waste-to-energy-based hydrogen fuel infrastructure management for road transportation in Canada: a lifecycle thinking approach 
  • Future road user charge alternatives to the gas tax and regulations to reduce congestion
