Pathways to scale: Barriers to, opportunities from, and impacts of retrofitting one million+ homes

Chief Investigators

Katie Vines (Climate-KIC Australia)

Purpose of project

Australian homes are very energy inefficient. Existing support programs are not highly scalable. One Million Homes aims to support a rapid scale-up scheme of energy efficiency retrofits for large-scale impact across Australia. The project will identify barriers, knowledge gaps, build capability and enhance existing industry and government schemes, by implementing energy efficiency retrofits in at least one million homes.

Impact of project

The outputs of this research will be used to inform the work of a coalition of organisations working to implement large-scale energy efficiency retrofits using a public-private financing model.
