Global climate change caused by carbon emissions is an escalating problem. In Australia, the residential sector contributes significantly to the country’s carbon footprint. The goal of our project was to promote homeowner transition to an environmentally sustainable, all-electric home. Conducting expert and homeowner interviews and surveys, we identified benefits, technical elements, and perceived barriers to this transition. We then developed appropriate print and digital materials that city councils can use to reach residents and encourage transitioning throughout inner Melbourne.
