Misconceptions obstruct mass adoption of low carbon housing


Industry misconceptions around high cost and poor market interest in energy efficient homes continue to obstruct the mass adoption of low carbon housing.

Josh’s House demonstrates that low carbon housing is accessible and cost effective. The Star Performers series showcases how similar outcomes have been achieved elsewhere around Australia. The 10 House Living Labs Study suggests that good design and appropriate technology is the quickest way to achieve improvements in operational energy and water use and is likely to be more effective than behaviour change programs. Each of these communication projects are part of a narrative designed to communicate robust research outcomes on low carbon housing whilst capturing popular interest.
