Buildings Plan Appendices

The Appendices from the Buildings Plan

Each appendix is linked to a file that is only available on line.

 


 

Appendix 1 – Residential energy modelling

This is a description of the national residential energy model created by Energy Efficient Strategies (EES). EES provded this description.
The appendix is principally referred from Part 5 Section 2 of the Buildings Plan.

 


Appendix 2 – Climate Zone coverage

This describes how the standard Building Code of Australia (BCA) climate zones relate to the different climate zones used in this plan.
This appendix is principally referred from Part 5.



Appendix 3 – Wind energy study

A study was undertaken by Vipac on urban wind energy potential.
This Appendix has not been completed.

 


Appendix 4 – Residential Case Study

This is a case study of a single home in Melbourne which has been retrofitted along the lines proposed in this plan.

 


Appendix 5 – Non-residential Stock Model

This was to describe, in more detail, the modelling which informs the estimate of non-residential energy consumption.
This Appendix has not been completed.

 


Appendix 6 – Hot water system modelling results

This describes, in more detail, the modelling performed to:

  • a) inform the decision about recommended hot water system type, and
  • b) estimate the hot water energy requirements under this plan.

This appendix is principally referred from Part 5 Section 2.2.
The Appendix is mainly a pointer to a ZIP archive containing the model and related files located here.

 


Appendix 7 – Reference home model

This describes the set of computer models used as main reference for the assessment of residential energy use.
This appendix is principally referred from Part 5 Section 2.1.

 


Appendix 8 – Rooftop solar resource model

This was to describe the modelling performed by Entura which informs this plan’s estimate of the national roof-top resource available for the installation of solar PV.
This appendix is principally referred from Part 5 Section 4.1.
This Appendix has not been completed.

 


Appendix 9 – Supporting information on Sankey diagram for residential HVAC

This provides supporting information related to the Sankey-style energy flow diagram shown at Part 3 Section 3.1.

 


Appendix 10 – Retrofit costings

This was to provide the raw costings data which informs the estimate of retrofit costs in Part 6.
This Appendix has not been completed.


Appendix 11 – Gas price analysis

This was to provide detail about the analysis of future gas price which informs the business-as-usual case in the economic analysis at Part 2 Section 7 and Part 6.
This Appendix has not been completed.


Appendix 12 – Electricity price analysis

This was to provide detail, from Energy Action, about the analysis of future electricity price which informs the business-as-usual case in the economic analysis at Part 2 Section 7 and Part 6.
This Appendix has not been completed.


Appendix 13 – Economic Analysis

This was to provide supporting material which informs the detailed economic analysis at Part 6 which compares business as usual economics, with the cost of undertaking the Buildings Plan retrofit.
This Appendix has not been completed.
