AB - Cities are increasingly recognized as major contributors to global resourceconsumption and other environmental problems. To date, urban industrialecology literature has focused largely on assessments of urban performance atannual whole-city scales, for example in descriptive urban metabolism studiesor strategic assessments of future policy directions. However implementingthese strategies and constructing e cient urban infrastructures in particularrequires greater spatial and temporal resolution in the underlying demanddata. As this information is rarely available, we demonstrate how activity-based modelling can be used to simulate these demand pro les. The methodis rst described in general before demonstrating its use in the simulationof electricity and gas demands in London. A simple regression model isused to convert activity pro les into resource demands and we discuss thestrengths and weaknesses of this approach, as well as evaluate future researchdirections.
