Achieving 7 stars and Net Zero Homes

House for ESDHow to build a better home that is cheaper to run, comfortable and more thermally efficient.

Power bills are going up and 7 star ratings for new homes are coming

This free forum presented by Jeremy Spencer of Positive Footprints will walk us through what the big ticket items are and illustrate the benefits and costs of building a carbon neutral home.

Jeremy says: I do think that it's important to explain the 7 star rating and whole of house approach given its release in Vic later in the year. I'll outline how to achieve a great outcome cost effectively. My focus as always is on practical achievable outcomes.

The presentation will be followed by a dynamic hypothetical where building professionals and purchasers get to play out a range of scenarios illustrating the challenges and opportunities presented when wanting to build a more efficient home.
