Impact Pathway 5: Evidence base for low carbon living policy

To support legislative carbon reduction initiatives and policies, the CRCLCL is working with all levels of government to explore the social, environmental and financial benefits of low carbon policy actions. Ensuring a high triple bottom line return for Australia will be a key factor for the government to implement policy change.

Detailed models of future energy use in the built environment will help test how take-up of alternative energy services might be affected by factors such as different policy scenarios and varying economic incentives. A particular concern will be to investigate how policy scenarios can be changed to make low carbon living more affordable, especially for low-income households.
