Residential housing is a major contributor of greenhouse gas emissions with most emissions being generated during the operation of buildings. Josh’s House has shown that high performance, Zero Emissions Homes (ZEH) are accessible to the volume market. The challenge is to now translate this into mainstream construction industry practice.
Through the collaborative delivery of ZEH display homes in new housing developments around Australia, Josh and his research team are looking to establish an agreed position on cost barriers and customer perception of ZEH homes, whilst engaging industry and informing the market.
The findings of the study are being documented in a series of publications and videos.
