Announced in the May 2023 Federal budget, the proposed $1 billion Household Energy Upgrades Fund will provide discounted consumer finance to increase sustainability across the housing sector.
Once approved, the Fund will provide discounted consumer finance to increase sustainability across the housing sector, including:
- Energy efficiency upgrades such as solar or solar and battery; and
- High performing appliances such heat pump hot water and air conditioners/heater systems, etc.
Renewable energy underpins electrification
UNIfied believes renewable energy underpins the electrification of a vast range of existing commercial, industrial and residential activities, as well as our transition to electric vehicles (EV) and laying the foundations for other emerging green energy.
We must remember that the vast majority of Australian homes were built before construction standards were introduced in the early 2000s. As such, many are inefficient in terms of energy consumption and thermal comfort.
A large number of homes also remain connected to gas, a high-emission fossil fuel.
Increasing the standards of energy-efficiency for Australian homes
Higher standards of energy-efficiency for Australian homes will reduce our energy consumption and provide a buffer against energy price spikes and increases. Furthermore, low or negative energy bills (as a result of payments for exporting electricity) will also largely offset the initial cost of building better-performing homes.
Households will also be less vulnerable to wider climatic events such as heatwaves. This is why the the Household Energy Upgrades Fund is a step in the right direction.
