FUNDING FOR ENERGY EFFICIENT HOUSING A WELCOME FIRST STEP TO IMPROVING BUILT ENVIRONMENT (FED)

The Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council (ASBEC) welcomes the Government’s announcement of a $250 million program to finance the development of energy efficient homes for low income earners. ASBEC President Ken Maher said: “Given that Australia’s housing is responsible for 13% of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions, this is a good first step towards improving the country’s building stock.” Further efforts are required to ensure that we meet the great potential that the building sector holds, in improving energy efficiency and reducing energy consumption in Australia’s homes.
