CEFC Investment Insight: Clean Energy and Community Housing

In this Investment Insight, CEFC details how the application of readily available technologies and thoughtful design is delivering homes that need less energy, produce lower emissions and provide improved comfort levels for tenants.

Australian households are directly responsible for about 20 per cent of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions, with energy use by the average household generating more than seven tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year.

With many of the homes built today expected to be in use in 50 or even 100 years’ time, we hope to see more investors, developers and owners also embrace this low emissions approach to home construction and energy use, with an eye to the long-term benefits.
