A home with zero energy bills is not a dream, it’s a reality. In 2011 the Integrated Design Commission and Renewal SA initiated the Zero Carbon Challenge. The aim was to design and build a house that would fully offset the embodied and operating emissions within 50 years. The winning entry by TS4 has been built at 12 Mundy Mews, Lochiel Park Green Village and is a model for future housing.
Brett and Paul will give an insight into the design and construction of the ‘zero carbon’ home. See http://www.ts4living.com.au.
ATA meetings put people with questions in touch with people who might have answers. The Q&A session after the main presentation is an open discussion about sustainability topics. For example:
- Who can help with an issue?
- What’s on in other parts of Adelaide, SA and Australia?
- Any events you’ve been to and what you’ve learned.
- What presentations or field trips would you’d like?
