This report outlines initiatives that would be transformational for the state, and also make a tangible improvement to the lives of everyday Queenslanders.
This report examines two major policies targeting renewable heat and energy performance in buildings in the UK from the past decade – the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) in Great Britain, and the minimum energy efficiency standard (MEES) in private rented housing in England. It also...
"What impacts does increasing airtightness have on mould, condensation and measures of indoor air quality?"
Leaky homes need more energy to keep warm or cool. Sealing the gaps in a house, or increasing airtightness, is a common tip to reduce energy consumption, as well as make the house more comfortable to live in. However, people need a certain amount of...
In this report, the legislation that has helped to drive greater energy efficiency is evaluated as well as recommendations to improve it. This includes ways to cut more energy and address resource efficiency to stop the UK getting through electronics at such an unsustainable rate...
This inquiry report examines what urban, rural and regional communities in Victoria are doing to tackle climate change, and how the Victorian government could better support these communities.
The main objective of this rapid systematic review is to synthesise knowledge from secondary literature employing systematic review and meta-analytic approaches on the mix and effectiveness of policy and program options for improving the energy efficiency of the homes in which low-income households reside.
The objective of this review is to find evidence on international best practices on financing models for energy efficiency investments in buildings.
