Launch of Energy Smart Strata research initiative
It’s official, the Energy Smart Strata Research Initiative is now open to the public.
Unofficially the program has been running since Septmeber 2012. During this period we have been in consultation with a number of stake holders to develop and refine the scope of the project. We have also been working with a number of strata management groups and have already audited 7 participating sites. The feedback we have recieved so far is very encouraging, with apartment buildings able to take advantge of low-cost energy audits and discover how easy it can be reduce energy costs and consumption.
We still have a long way to go. We are aiming to assess over 50 apartment buildings across the Greater Sydney Region. The more apartment buildings who participate in our study the greater the statistical significance of our data and the greater the scope and detail of our study. Places in the study are filling up fast so we encourage sites to register their interest in participating in the study to avoid missing out.
