Barriers to Attaining Household Energy Efficiency

Abstract

This proposal explores the barriers to attaining household energy efficiency in Brisbane. The
objuective of the study will be to establish the energy the current knowledge, attitudes, and
perception about energy saving in Brisbane households, to explore how the built environment
contribute to energy efficiency in Brisbane households, and explore the energy saving practices
in Brisbane households. The study will use survey research design and a questionnaire for data
collection. The study will be collected within a period of 10 weeks. All ethical obligations will
be observed.

1.0 Introduction
1.1 Contextual/Background Information

Household energy consumption is a major component of the overall energy consumption
in a country. As concerns for the continued use of non-renewable energy grows due to
environmental implications, the government is targeting reduced energy consumption and
adoption of renewable energy sources. In 2003, Queensland government launched the Smart
Housing project which was aimed a minimising environmental impact through material and
design approaches (Queensland Government, 2006). The government proposed passing research
which enables energy saving, wast avoidance by installing products and fittings that comes with
flexible option to reduce energy use, and increased use of renewable energy sources while
reducing non-renewable sources like installing solar panels on rooftops. This proposition
therefore targeting the built elements, including the overall design and house fittings like
appliances which plays a major role in household energy efficiency. However, this proposal has
limitations because most houses in the state are old and reconfiguring them to increase energy
efficiency is challenging and costly. This has turned attention to behavioural aspects of energy
consumption. Barriers to Attaining Household Energy Efficiency…
