Household sustainability assessment tools

The Australian Greenhouse Calculator, developed by Adjunct Professor Alan Pears for the Environmental Protection Association (EPA, VIC), formed the starting point for development of Australia’s first comprehensive energy and water and greenhouse gas assessment tool for Australian households.

A series of research projects (ongoing) has led to the new calculator tool being provided in a Web 2.0 interface form and further developed for a variety of settings.
