Adelaide living laboratory - value proposition: householder experience

15 Jun 2015

This report explores and quantifies the value proposition from the perspective of the owner occupier of a low carbon impact residential building. The experience of low carbon living applied in this report draws heavily on the experiences of households at Lochiel Park in South Australia, but also on the published literature examined in the initial project report ‘Value Proposition: Literature Review’.The experience of the householder investor documented in this report demonstrates that low carbon living provides many benefits including lower energy bills, increased levels of thermal comfort, improved health and wellbeing, intrinsic positive feelings associated with climate change action, and benefits from increased social capital. Where those experiences can be monetised with reasonable confidence, the net private impact is overwhelmingly positive to householder investors.Read a media release about this report.
