Direct Energy Australia is proud to be an official Project Partner of the 5 x 4 Hayes Lane Project.

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.
