The Zero Carbon Australia (ZCA2020) Buildings Plan is set to launch in the coming months. The ZCA2020 Buildings Plan aims to demonstrate that there are no technical barriers to zero emission buildings in Australia. Project Director, Trent Hawkins, will take us through energy efficiency retrofits, thermal modelling software, implementation timelines, economic case studies, and the renewable energy strategies, that will make every building energy self-sufficient (i.e. zero net energy consumption) by the year 2020.
Whatever your incentive, energy efficient building design and sustainable performance is an absolute no-brainer. It would reduce Australia’s total carbon emissions. It would present energy savings for bill payers and more healthy and comfortable homes. This also has reciprocal benefits for government spending: a healthier population and more breathing room for the transition to renewable energy.
