Benefits of Subscribing to GEER
For organisations and individuals wanting to keep closely connected with GEER and to access numerous benefits, we encourage you to subscribe. Subscription offers many benefits:
1. Access to the Knowledge Interface on Residential Energy Efficiency (KIREE)
There is a lot of information out there about energy efficiency – programs being run, policies being made, research being conducted, reports being released and hot issues reported in the media. GEER offers a unique product that provides an interface for subscribers between what is going on in Australia with regard to energy efficiency and the insights and knowledge base of GEER members on those matters. It will provide subscribers with a one-stop-shop for finding out about energy-related matters in Australia, allowing them to gain quick access to a wide variety of summarised and interpreted information, in a format that is easy to find, easy to read and highly useful. It contains general information, as well as information relating specifically to low-income households. KIREE is available to subscribers only. Early subscribers will be able to request information to be included in KIREE and so guide the design of the sort of information they most want to access.
Some of the key areas of KIREE:
• Projects in energy efficiency – previous and current
• Project design options – methods
• Research and evaluation frameworks
• Measurement challenges and guidelines for evaluation
• Energy issues and solutions
• Energy consumers – tenants, landlords, demographics
• Energy in Australia – policy and market landscapes
