Mainstreaming low carbon residential precincts – the WGV Living Laboratory

RP3033 final report
04 Sep 2019

The structure of this report is based on the CRCLCL RP3033 project activities which included:
Performance modelling to ascertain the operational energy and carbon emission profiles for the different dwelling typologies at WGV.
Life Cycle Analysis of a selection of dwellings in the precinct representing different typologies, construction methods and building materials.
The design and implementation of performance monitoring systems to monitor operational energy and water use across the precinct.
Data collection and analysis to demonstrate the degree of energy and water savings across the various dwelling typologies compared to local averages.
Resident engagement to understand the impact of home practice on energy and water use.
Engagement with the City of Fremantle (local government authority) to share the findings of a planning and design process analysis to identify solutions to barriers to the implementation of low carbon developments.
Documentation and communication of the WGV Living Lab journey via a 10-part web-based video series.
Each of these activities is presented as a dedicated section in this report; including activity overview, outcomes and references.
