Transitioning to Net Zero Energy Homes—Learnings from the CRC’s High-Performance Housing Living Laboratories
MetadataShow full item record
As Australia works towards meeting its international commitment of net zero emissions by 2050, the residential housing sector represents an important opportunity to target energy efficiency gains and apply renewable energy technologies. A transition to net zero energy housing is expected to provide multiple benefits to residents and the Australian economy. This chapter presents research that is contributing to this important transition. The case studies described are projects that have been built across Australia and extensively documented as urban living laboratories, exploring different technologies, design concepts, building typologies, and user experiences. Examples are drawn from greenfield and in-fill (greyfield) developments and range from single lot to precinct scale approaches, providing material evidence of the role the residential sector can play in helping Australia meet its international obligations and transition to a low carbon future.
