SBRC Public Open Day

The SBRC hosts an annual Public Open Day to showcase the research of our staff and students. 

The SBRC will be hosting it's annual Public Open Day in the second half of 2017. We will have our research on display and our researchers available to tell you all about our exciting projects. A panel of experts will be free to give you advice on building or retrofitting your home plus a number of industry partners on display. The Illawarra Flame House will also be open as well as information available about UOW's newest Solar Decathlon entry, Desert Rose!

We had a very successful Open Day in November 2015 as shown below:

IREE Conference

IREE for website

In February 2017 the SBRC hosted the first Improving Residential Energy Efficiency Conference at the Innovation Campus. This conference brought together researchers, building designers, housing providers, energy utilities and policy makers to share the latest research and practice, and to look at practical ways to bring about the widespread adoption of energy efficient housing. It was the first conference in Australia to focus specifically on improving energy efficiency in the home and looked at the influence of government policy, technologies and occupant practice.
