Earlier this year Council ran three home sustainability webinars alongside Renew, a leader in education and taking practical action on climate change. Renew's presenters have expert, independent knowledge, extensive experience presenting and a passion for empowering sustainable living within Australian homes. Recordings can be found below in case you missed out.

All-Electric Homes 

Recent research suggests that by 2024 a household in Melbourne will save more than $2,700 a year by going all-electric.

But ditching gas in favour of electric solutions isn’t only a way to save on your energy bills, it’s also better for the environment and your health. With so many options for electric heating, hot water, and cooking, how can you be sure where to start? And how much does it cost?

Electric Vehicles 

With fuel prices rising steadily, it’s time for Australians to embrace electric vehicles. But finding independent advice can be tricky! This webinar will give you the information that you need to go electric.

Designing for Resilience 

As our climate becomes increasingly precarious, the need for us to build and renovate our homes for resilience becomes more pertinent than ever.

The problem is, so many of our homes are not well equipped to deal with the varying weather extremes that characterise modern life. Despite the Melbourne cold and heat, many older homes are uninsulated or lack other basic means of providing households a comfortable refuge from the outside climate.
