The CRC for Low Carbon Living has produced a series of practical guides summarising best practice in various phases of the building lifecycle—construction, retrofit, operations—for a range of building types in the residential and commercial sectors and at the level of precincts.  Other Guides will cover areas such as Landscape, Value-chain and Urban Heat.

Guide to low carbon households

Occupants, or householders, may be owners or renters and there may be multiple householders within one dwelling. This document recognises the needs and capacities of these different householder groups and, where appropriate, also addresses the needs of households in different climate zones.

Guide to low carbon residential retrofit

The document builds on key research conducted nationally by individuals and organisations, including the Australian Government’s Department of Environment and Energy and local universities, working in the areas of low carbon retrofit options, housing typology and climate.

More guides coming soon
