The Energy Efficiency Research Hub
The Energy Efficiency Research Hub is a collaboration between the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH), NSW universities and research institutions, which maximises co-investment in priority research topics.
The Hub will draw on academic resources and funding to conduct, collect and disseminate energy efficiency research.
The Hub is designed to deliver NSW specific research, which identifies new greenhouse gas emissions reduction and energy saving opportunities. The NSW Government has currently invested $600,000 to fund new energy and resource efficiency research over the next two years.
An evidence base
OEH recognises that a strong evidence base is needed to assess the impact of energy efficiency policies and programs in NSW. Any research commissioned by the Hub is tied to NSW Government operational and policy priorities, including OEH strategic knowledge needs.
Energy Efficiency Decision Making Node
Led by the Cooperative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living, this node will focus on decision making of New South Wales consumers and suppliers about energy efficiency. This node is a consortium that includes the University of Wollongong, University of New South Wales and CSIRO.
