Project leader(s)

This project is supported by the Icon Water and ActewAGL Endowment Fund. Working with ActewAGL, the research team will evaluate the extent to which poorly insulated homes limit people’s ability to control bills when on demand management rates such as time-of-use. This project builds on prior research by Dr White which established that time-of-use rates, while valuable for integrating intermittent renewable generation, can lead to disproportionately large bill increases for groups more likely to live in poorly insulated homes that don’t maintain temperatures well.

Climate, energy & the environment cluster

Climate, energy & the environment

This cluster has four broad regulatory and governance research themes: identifying obstacles and options for effective energy governance; analysing state and private governance mechanisms for mitigating climate change; examining the opportunities and constraints of the green economy in transforming infrastructure and urban development; and exploring creative regulatory solutions to transnational environmental problems.
