Published 18 August 2007BRANZ Ltd will release research on household energy use at a seminar in Wellington on Tuesday 28 August. Principal scientist Nigel Isaacs said: “A sustainable society with a carbon-neutral economy will not happen just by building more renewable electric generation. It will require understanding today’s energy use & tomorrow’s alternatives.” The seminar will report on the final results from the household energy end-use project, which has examined energy use in a random sample of 400 houses from Invercargill to Kaikohe. The project now provides new knowledge on living conditions, fuel poverty, household winter & summer temperatures, hot water, lighting, refrigeration & the use of appliances. The one-day Wellington seminar on 28 August will be of interest to housing researchers, policy analysts, programme planners, practitioners, researchers and students interested in housing and opportunities to meet the challenges of climate change. The seminar, Housing into the future – stepping towards carbon neutrality, will be at Victoria University’s School of Architecture, 139 Vivian St, Tuesday 28 August at 9-5.
