Technical research and modelling

The Green House has built up a detailed technical understanding of all sectors of the South African economy in terms of activities and structure, technologies employed, energy and material flows, emissions to air and water, waste generation and resulting environmental impacts. With this technical background, together with our academic grounding, The Green House is well placed to undertake technical research on a diverse range of specialist topics, including exploratory “blue skies” research. Previous work has resulted in technical reports, literature reviews, position papers, book chapters, handbooks and new methods we apply in our work.
