The Improving Residential Energy Efficiency Conference 2019 (IREE) invites extended abstract submissions from both academics and industry/practitioners. The theme of this conference is ‘The nexus between energy, health and wellbeing’.
Understanding the role that energy efficiency plays in the everyday lives, health, and wellbeing of Australians is a complex challenge which requires the combined efforts of government agencies, energy providers and energy users. The 2019 IREE Conference will showcase research, case studies, conceptual ideas, and opinion pieces/critical viewpoints that focus on improving energy efficiency in Australian households and homes.
This conference will benefit numerous audiences including energy, health and community sector providers, state and national government agencies involved in energy regulation and policy, and researchers in energy efficiency in general. The aim is to share best practice outcomes, determined from research efforts, which may inform future actions around energy efficiency and wellbeing.
Papers are in the form of an extended abstract and should be no more than two pages of content (excluding references and appendices).
