This year our Annual Forum will be held at the #Adelaide National Wine Centre on 19-20 November. It will highlight how our #lowcarbon #research is becoming #reality and making an impact. More to come, but for now, save the date! @abcadelaide @9NewsAdel @adelaidenow @theTiser pic.twitter.com/TsNLVqV8pZ— Low Carbon Living (@CRC_LCL) August 23, 2018

Household energy use is a significant contributor to global carbon emissions. International policy is firmly moving towards technology-rich, low- and near-zero-energy homes. That is, buildings designed to reduce the need for additional heating, cooling and lighting. They use efficient or renewable energy technology to reduce the remaining energy use.
Read about our partnership with ASBEC and ClimateWorks on a project aimed at "develop[ing] an industry-led, evidence-based pathway for the adoption of ambitious long-term targets for the energy performance requirements in the National Construction Code."
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?
#CRCLCL project @Climate_Clever has helped #WA #school #students measure and reduce their school’s #carbon #footprint, saving almost $30,000 collectively on utility bills - now it's coming to #NSW and you're invited to the launch @AECOM. https://t.co/Fj7hY0SypU @vanessarauland pic.twitter.com/blzJvr9ow7— Low Carbon Living (@CRC_LCL) August 24, 2018
