On-ground Assessment of Energy Efficiency Potential of Victorian Houses

Client: Moreland Energy Foundation Ltd (MEFL)

EnergyConsult assisted Moreland Energy Foundation Ltd (MEFL) to undertake an on-ground assessment of the energy efficiency potential of a sample of Victorian homes, which was conducted for Sustainability Victoria. EnergyConsult advised on the measurement methodology and undertook the analysis of energy savings of all homes using data collected by MEFL and its subcontractors and prepared the report. Modelling of the energy load of the homes was done using AccuRate and appliance efficiency was determined using energy rating data on all fixed and the main portable appliances. The costs, energy savings and greenhouse emission savings of different options for improving the housing envelope and appliances were researched and determined.
