Warm, cool and energy-affordable housing solutions for low-income renters: An Investigative Panel

Lyrian Daniel, University of Adelaide

This investigative panel provides essential evidence on the vulnerability of public and private tenants to energy hardship. It will review of the current landscape of energy hardship and housing conditions within the Australian social and private rental sectors and undertake a policy and technical review of international and national interventions to address energy hardship. Findings will be tested in focus groups, and through Investigative panel deliberations energy hardship intervention measures and policy options will be determined.
