LEADING THE WAY TOWARDS A RESTORATIVE FUTURE
The aim of the SBRC is to research, collaborate, and link with industry to meet the challenge of improving the energy efficiency of our new and existing building stock. The SBRC will lead the way in sustainable building research through delivery of advanced retrofit technologies, integrated component testing, skills training and researching the impacts of day to day behaviours of building occupants.
A NEW APPROACH TO ENERGY EFFICIENCY TRAINING
UOW is offering a new approach to energy efficiency training for engineers with a focus on four key areas:
- Energy Efficiency In Electricity generation, transmission, distribution and demand-side management(EEIE);
- Energy Efficiency In the Built Environment (EEIBE). A key way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions;
- Energy Efficiency enhancements in Industry (EEII). Such a focus is required if Engineers of the future are to make a real difference in their future workplaces; and
- Changing user perceptions and behaviours to maximise the community’s adoption of energy efficient technologies. Critical to ensuring that technical training translates to action and uptake of energy efficient practices and
