This paper is a review of the potential commercialisation and adoption pathways for a suite of energy efficiency policy-uptake modelling capabilities from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation’s (CSIRO). Common Capital undertook this review for the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Low Carbon Living and CSIRO.
Executive Summary Almost nine in ten Australian households want to take action to reduce their household energy consumption. Despite this interest, most home-buyers and lessees do not consider the carbon performance of their future home. This project seeks to develop a pathway for enhancing the market for low carbon homes at sale and lease. It will combine research and analysis of existing literature, benchmarking of existing information systems, consumer tradesperson research and industry consultation.
Executive Summary This report investigates a range of energy efficiency information systems in Europe and the United States. The analysis shows that a number of tools and systems have effectively provided information that allows the property and financial markets to value energy efficient buildings and drives large scale household retrofit activities.
Executive Summary Scope and objectives This report provides the findings from the stakeholder-mapping stage the EnergyFit Homes Initiative phase 1. The objectives of this phase were to develop a map of the relevant stakeholders and to understand their perspectives of the need, scope and implantation of a national home energy efficiency information framework. A secondary objective of this stage was to begin to build consensus and a coalition of support for options to be built on in the next stage. This is the penultimate research stage of Phase 1.
This report and eight associated working papers are a deliverable for the Project RP3016: ‘Enhancing the market for low-carbon homes at point of sale and lease’ funded by the CRC for Low Carbon Living. This project is publicly known as the EnergyFit Homes Project: empowering consumers to recognise and value homes with better health, comfort and sustainability benefits and lower running costs.The EnergyFit Homes Project seeks to develop a pathway for enhancing the market for energy efficient homes at point of sale and lease.
