Housing Condition/Energy Performance of Rental Properties in Victoria

Client: Moreland Energy Foundation

Research into the energy efficiency and condition of rental housing in Victoria was conducted by EnergyConsult to provide insights into whether efficiency and conditions differed from owner-occupied homes. A review and analysis of existing research was conducted and then energy audits were conducted of 60 rental properties, using Moreland Energy Foundation to conduct the audits. Areas where significant improvements in the energy and water efficiency of housing could be obtained were identified.
