The process to achieve a carbon neutral settlement via an emissions reduction plan, following a life cycle analysis, is in five steps: 1) Understanding energy use, 2) Behaviour change programs, 3) Energy efficiency improvements, 4) Monitoring and control, 5) Renewable energy technologies, and 6) Biosequestration as a sink for the balance of past, current and ongoing emissions. Three cases typical of Australia are analysed with this six-step reduction model: the urban village, the remote minesite camp and the remote Aboriginal settlement. Following extensive research a carbon reduction plan has been developed for each case.
