In Professor Deo Prasad's latest article for Sourceable, he writes about encouraging changes to attitudes to low carbon living and energy creation.
A new report by the Cooperative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living (CRCLCL) says Australia’s energy efficiency policy and regulation is not keeping up with market realities and best practices in other OECD countries, and has called for a comprehensive review to help Australia transition rapidly to the economically attractive low-carbon built environment of the future.
Today, at the CRC for Low Carbon Living’s (CRCLCL's) Regenerative Cities National Forum, urban ecologist Professor Herbert Girardet praised Australia and the CRCLCL for its low carbon living laboratory projects in Sydney, Perth and Adelaide, saying they will help advance this important practice.
In Professor Deo Prasad's latest article for Sourceable, he writes about how zero to low carbon cities that are sustainable and energy efficient are now becoming reality.
Dr Josh Byrne was interviewed by Sky News about his new web series, Density By Design.
Dr Josh Byrne's new series Density by Design will see him visit ground-breaking projects, seeking out the leading minds and ideas around sustainable, higher density residential projects in Australia that are inspiring change through demonstration.
CRCLCL project RP3008 was the subject of a recent piece in The Age
"More than half the world's population now lives in a city, and carbon emissions from them are estimated to be as high as 87 per cent. But if we did things differently, what would Australian cities look like in the year 2040?
There is increasing adoption of water and energy efficient design and technology in our homes, but in many cases how we operate them means they often fall short of their potential. Uncertainty surrounding the extent of this behavioural impact is often used as a reason not to mandate more stringent efficiency standards. The reality is the degree of behavioural impact is poorly understood, let alone what it takes to change it.
2017, "Roof-top Solar Hits a Crossroad – Are Smart Meters the Answer?", Deo Prasad, Sourceable
Australian rooftop solar is now at a crossroads – but it’s all positive. New technologies mean big data can be gathered from systems so that performance can be monitored and alerts raised if problems occur.
