Energy Consumers Australia is pleased today to publish two new Power Shift reports.
Power Shift is an Energy Consumers Australia project which is drawing on the lessons from the Australian Government’s $56 million Low Income Energy Efficiency Program (LIEEP).
The reports are an important new resource for people designing and evaluating energy management products, policies and programs.
The first report, Driving Change: Identifying what caused low-income consumers to change behaviour, sorts through the data collected from the 19,000 consumers who participated in the 20 LIEEP pilots to identify the techniques and approaches that worked and why. The analysis was undertaken by GEER Australia, to inform future policy and program development.
The second report, Multiple Impacts of Household Energy: An Assessment Framework, was authored by ACIL Allen and provides a practical tool for policy-makers who want to understand the full range of benefits associated with best-practice energy efficiency measures.
Energy Consumers Australia is hosting a webinar series to start a conversation about the two reports. The webinars are an opportunity to hear directly from the authors of the reports, and ask questions about the research:
- Driving Change webinar will be held at 1.30 -3.00 pm Thursday 30 November
- Multiple Impacts of Household Energy is scheduled for 10.30am-12.30pm on Wednesday 13 December
To register for either or both webinars, please email Emily Gadeleta, at firstname.lastname@example.org
The reports were commissioned through Energy Consumers Australia’s Power Shift agenda, which aims to assist government and industry deliver programs and products that support low income and vulnerable households to manage their energy efficiently. The outcome will be that consumers have sufficient energy to live safely and comfortably and to manage their bills, with indirect benefits to the wider economy and social inclusion.
Power Shift is funded through the Australian Government.
