The project goal is to build a super energy efficient dwelling in the heart of Melbourne that showcases latest designs and proven energy efficient technologies.
By transforming the under-used laneway into a sustainable, small footprint, high rise dwelling, the project is demonstrating how to achieve a low emissions lifestyle.
It will be a zero fossil gas, highly insulated air-tight building featuring super efficient direct geothermal heating and cooling and other cutting edge efficient electrical appliances.
The dwelling will be powered by a combination of rooftop solar photovoltaic and 100% renewable Green Power.
Direct Energy Australia is assisting the 5×4 team with the specification of the Geothermal Heating & Cooling system for space heating/cooling and water heating to reduce this energy usage by up to 75% or more.
