  • Convergence Creates Porous Walls in Infrastructure Networks

    Porous Walls

    You wake up one morning, stumble out of bed in search of your usual cuppa to start the day. You flick on the kettle; there is no electricity. You mutter under your breath, decide to take a shower and deal with the electricity later. A trickle of water is all that flows from the low-pressure rose in your shower recess. You’re annoyed now. You decide to head to a nearby café for coffee and a danish, and maybe local supermarket for milk, fresh bread. The café is also experiencing a power outage, the supermarket in darkness too, as well as having had no early morning deliveries to re-stock shelves. You scratch your head and wonder if you’re starring in a dystopian drama series.

And that’s the aim behind the Cavenagh Street heat mitigation trial.
