Can we use SAVi on social infrastructure projects?

Yes. We can customize SAVi beginning with the physical infrastructure, such as buildings, needed to deliver the service. We then develop complementary models to simulate the externalities associated with delivering the service.

For example, in the case of a public school, we can simulate the increase in energy use and emissions that result from school traffic, along with the associated air pollution and how it affects human health. Similarly, we can calculate medium-term productivity triggered by other factors, such as lower numbers of high school drop-outs or reduced spending on juvenile crime control and rehabilitation.
