A national energy efficiency program to assist low-income households. /

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Ecos Corporation | KPMG.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. KPMG 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: KPMG were engaged by the Brotherhood of St Laurence and in conjunction with Ecos Corporation conducted a study into the possible impacts of the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS) on low-income households. This report outlines the range of options available to the Government for providing assistance. We welcome the Commonwealth Government’s commitment to addressing the problem of climate change, its acknowledgement of the difficulties facing low-income households and its commitment to engage with the community through the Green Paper. This report puts forward a roadmap for the Government to meet its commitment made in the Green Paper to assist low-income households. Our roadmap demonstrates the difficulties which will confront low-income households but more importantly provides a detailed plan of action to close the gap in the expected extra costs of energy bills resulting from the CPRS. The program outlined in this paper ensures that money will be spent in a way that most effectively meets the aims of the Commonwealth Government’s policy to provide assistance to low-income households. A cornerstone of our implementation plan is an unprecedented program of targeted home visits, aimed at harnessing the full potential of energy efficiency measures. Home visits achieve this by matching energy efficiency measures to the characteristics of the house, as well as taking into account demographic, geographic and climatic issues.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1), BSL Archives (1).

Analysis of job creation and energy cost savings : from building energy rating and disclosure policy /

by Burr, Andrew C | Institute for Market Transformation | Majersik, Cliff | Stellberg, Sarah.

Publisher: Amherst, Mass. Institute for Market Transformation 2012; Political Economy Research Institute (PERI), University of 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2012Summary: "As part of efforts to reduce urban emissions, major cities and states, including New York City, San Francisco, the District of Columbia, and California, are now requiring building owners and operators to measure and disclose building energy performance. Such policies are expected to expand significantly in the coming years. In this study, produced with the Institute for Market Transformation, Heidi Garrett-Peltier analyzes the broader impact of these policies. Garrett-Peltier finds that they have the potential to create more than 23,000 new jobs in 2015 and more than 59,000 in 2020, along with significant savings in costs and energy consumption." -- ideas.repec.orgAvailability: (1)

Energy and Water Task Force social research /

Publisher: Clayton, Vic. Monash Sustainability Institute 2009Description: PDF.Other title: Monash Sustainability Institute report ; no. 09/3.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2009 Commissioned by Sustainability Victoria Bibliography : p. 35-37Summary: The Energy and Water Taskforce (EWTF) has assisted over 5000 low income households to save energy and water. The program has been shown to have reduced energy usage by the participating households in the 25 towns and suburbs which were given free assessments and retrofits. The program has other potential benefits which now need to be understood so the place and value of the program as a whole can be understood. The research has identified that social outcomes are being achieved in addition to the articulated aims of the EWTF. In addition to job skill development, a major social value of the EWTF lies in the ability of the program to build community strength in the local community hosting the program. This is being achieved, rather than building personal social capital.Availability: (1)

The consumption of energy in the residential sector is a significant contributor to Australia's stationary energy greenhouse gas emissions. It is therefore imperative that detailed and accurate quantification of energy consumption is used as a basis for the development of climate change response strategies.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Improving the energy efficiency of homes in Moreland : Warm Home Cool Home and Concession Assist social research final report. /

by Johnson, Victoria | Moreland Solar City | Sullivan, Damian | Totty, Jo | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2013Description: viii, 58 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: In Australia, growing concern about climate change and rising energy prices has renewed interest in residential energy efficiency. Between 2007 and 2012, Australian retail electricity prices have risen by 72 per cent (ABS 2012). Low-income households, which spend a higher proportion of their income on energy than other households, are particularly vulnerable to these price rises. We are also beginning to experience the impacts of climate change - including an increase in the intensity of heatwaves, to which low-income households are highly vulnerable (see ACOSS 2013; Edwards & Wiseman 2009). Homes that are more energy efficient have the potential to reduce householders' vulnerability to rising energy prices, and may also reduce vulnerability to heatwaves. However, many low-income households face financial and other barriers to improving the energy efficiency of their homes. ; This report presents the results of social research which investigated the impact of energy efficiency activity for households that participated in the Warm Home Cool Home (WHCH) and Concession Assist (CA) programs. The research described was conducted by the BSL through Moreland Solar City, which is part of the Australian Government's national Solar Cities program. Led by Moreland Energy Foundation Limited (MEFL), Moreland Solar City is a partnership with Moreland City Council, the BSL and Sustainability Victoria. The WHCH and CA programs were delivered by the BSL and MEFL. Like most energy efficiency programs targeted to low-income households, the programs aimed to address cost, information and trust barriers faced by these households in improving the energy efficiency of their homes.
