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...Read more
A rapid review on green-rated office buildings, and their operational energy use, found that the conclusions of six studies ranged from the certified buildings performing worse, similarly or much better than the non-certified buildings in terms of energy usage intensity. Two...Read more
In response to feedback, high-income households can reduce their energy use to a larger degree than low-income households (17% vs 3% reduction). This and other insights were gained by two rapid reviews into research, both Australian and International, on digital services and...Read more
Slide presentation covering the fundamentals of how energy efficiency targets and policies can be used in tandem to reduce energy use in buildings and meet energy and development goals. The slides provided guidelines to policymakers to identify, prioritise and quantify different policy options.Trainers: Brian Dean and John Dulac
This presentation provides a guideline to policymakers on
1. How to test the claims that the building energy codes were outdated from the industry association.
2. What to do if the claims and information are correct.
The presentation guide policymakers on the fundamentals of how to evaluate both energy and non-energy benefits (the multiple benefits) of energy efficiency for buildings. Previous case studies that have been completed were compared to evaluate the monetised value of energy efficiency measures using numerous categories for multiple benefits.

Energy is needed in industry for a number of technologies and processes, including cross- cutting technologies such as steam, motors, compressed air, pumps, heating and cooling, as well as specific processes in energy-intensive sectors (Chemicals, Iron and Steel, Cement, Pulp and Paper, Non-Ferrous Metals, and Food).
