Australian homes are so inefficient and so leaky they are described as “glorified tents”. There’s a simple way to cut emissions and power power bills.
If you aren’t burning gas in your home for space or water heating, there might be one gas user left in your home: the cooktop.
A hot-water heat pump can be the cheapest way to heat water at your home or business, with or without rooftop solar.
How do you heat your home cheaply and efficiently if you don’t use gas? There are renewable options.
A look at the numbers shows that in eastern Australia, gas demand is going nowhere – for a whole bunch of reasons, including costs, climate and competition.
Victoria government would be better advised to encourage plastic industry to recycle waste rather than handing out more subsidies foraging for fossil fuels.
AEMO is warning of a potential gas shortage, but is basing that call on information from the industry – which wants to drill, frack and extract.
The gas industry needs a new social licence strategy. It’s come up with “blue hydrogen”.
AEMO should publish an updated 100%-renewable energy plan. A lot has changed since it last tackled the issue, with little enthusiasm, in 2013.
Will the public-relations power of renewable hydrogen be harnessed by fossil-fuel interests only to maintain business-as-usual?
