Dr David Whaley: Zero energy housing


Dr David M Whaley is an engineer and Research Associate at the University of South Australia who specialises in sustainable housing, energy monitoring, renewable energy systems design and integration. David will present the latest research findings of detailed energy demand data from a near zero energy housing development in Adelaide, called Adelaide Living Laboratory (ALL). This is an action based research project that will inform communities and the building, construction and development industries. It will provide an evidence base that can then be rolled out nationally to enable significant reduction of carbon emissions of the building and construction development sector and urban communities.

David's research publications include topics such as:

“Electricity demand profile in Low Energy Houses”

"The implications of mandating photovoltaics on all new homes"

"Do zero energy homes stay zero energy?"

"In-situ evaluation of water consumption and energy use in Australian domestic water heaters"

“Integrated Solar Thermal System for Water and Space Heating, Dehumidification and Cooling”

David will join us from UniSA via zero emissions video link.
