The EE3A project has now recruited over 800 households across the greater Illawarra to participate in energy efficiency activities over the next 2 years. All participants will start off by completing a survey to understand their current attitudes and behaviours towards energy efficiency in the home. Following this, they will be invited to join in with various activities that have been designed by researchers at UOW to improve and measure changes in household energy efficiency.
What is unique about this energy efficiency project is that participants will have ‘bottom-up’ engagement at the outset, rather than having ‘top-down’ strategies pre-ordered and imposed. This approach will stimulate outcomes and solutions to barriers that go beyond saving money and energy, but consider a holistic approach to also being healthy and improving whole quality of life.
