When asked about our work, or about our qualifications regarding sustainability, from our own experiences, the response is often understood as dealing with solar panels or being involved in other clichéd sustainable actions. While such technologies and actions can play a role in an approach to the sustainable dichotomy these are just a fraction what we do and know. There is a whole lot more that could be understood to what energy efficient home plans sustainability is.

Understanding what energy efficiency is and how it is a key role within the notion of sustainability can help you save money in the long term, create an asset rather than a liability and be a part of making an environmental difference.

The notion of energy efficiency is understood as üsing less energy to provide the same service “in conjunction with this statement it has been noted that ënergy efficiency is not energy conservation, instead energy conservation is reducing or going without a service to save energy” for example: Turning off a light is energy conservation, replacing an standard light for a LED light or fluorescent light (which uses less energy is produce the same amount of light) is energy efficiency.

In the case of Sustainability WA’s interpretation of energy efficiency it is not to suggest wearing a jumper to keep warm or strip down to keep cool, which leads to energy conservation.  Instead Sustainability WA provides advice to assist with thermal management of a residence or commercial structure.

The measure of the energy efficiency of a residence is measured as a star rating. According the to the Building Code of Australia the minimum thermal performance is measured by a 6 star rating. The highest rating achieved for a residence is 10 Stars which indicates that there is no need for any assisted thermal management.

According to owner Nathan Peart, Sustainability WA “Aims to ensure that our clients achieve their energy efficiency targets, make an environmental difference and most importantly make certain that your energy efficiency choices save you money in the long term”.

Don’t waste anymore of your time worrying about keeping up-to-date with the ongoing changes to energy efficiency regulations.
