Let’s face it, Australia can do a lot better on energy efficiency and renewable energy for rental homes.
With New Zealand bringing in minimum standards for energy efficiency measures such as insulation, it’s time for us across the ditch to step up.
The latest issue of ReNew: technology for a sustainable future looks at what’s happening in Australia, what landlords can do (and what some are doing already), and the energy efficiency scorecard currently being trialled in Victoria that may help push the market in the right direction.
Renters and apartment dwellers miss out on savings from solar. It can be difficult to install solar systems on apartment buildings for many reasons, including technical.
ReNew looks at how solar is possible for rental homes and apartments, and investigates successful case studies that have resulted in benefits for landlords, renters and the environment.
Plus the latest issue includes a comprehensive Solar Panel Buyers Guide and a mini-guide on induction cooktops.
And there are articles on solar panel recycling, 100% renewables by 2020, solar monitoring basics, electric vehicle maintenance and lots more!
