Healthy and comfortable homes for all Australians
Too many Australians are living in unhealthy and uncomfortable homes, because they can’t afford their energy bills, or their house is poorly built. The Housing Summit 2018 will bring together people from across Australia to call for improved energy efficiency standards in housing.
Energy Consumers Australia, in partnership with consumer organisations, is convening the Housing Summit 2018 to take advantage of a unique opportunity to raise the energy efficiency of our homes, as an essential step in achieving healthy and comfortable homes for all Australians.
The Housing Summit 2018 will:
- issue a call to action for government and industry to ensure Australians have access to healthy and comfortable homes
- present the evidence for improving energy efficiency standards
- identify opportunities and solutions for change.
This event will be relevant to consumer groups working on housing and/or energy issues, as it underlines the critical link between health, housing and energy. Government officials, researchers and industry will also benefit from hearing the consumer voice on these issues.
Participation in this event is free as we want to bring together a wide range of stakeholders to achieve our common vision – but places are limited.
The Housing Summit 2018 is organised through Energy Consumers Australia’s Power Shift program, which aims to work with industry and government to deliver products, policies and programs that enable consumers to manage their energy effectively. Power Shift is funded through a Commonwealth grant.
Please forward the invitation to your relevant networks. If you would like to be invited to the event, please send us an email.
