Annexure 2

Schedule 2 – Activities

1. Overview (clause 1.1)

The key challenge of the CRC for Low Carbon Living is to address climate change by bringing together

leading innovators from the public and private sectors to develop the scientific, technological, industrial,

educational and social resources required for Australian communities to develop a low carbon built

environment.

The CRC includes three programs of research:

• Research Program 1 - Integrated Building Systems: will develop (i) low-carbon-lifecycle building construction components/ materials and (ii) building-integrated multipurpose solar products, to support the next generation construction practice.

• Research Program 2 - Low Carbon Precincts: will develop tools that enable the design of, and stimulate the market for, low carbon infrastructure at “precinct” scale.

• Research Program 3 - Engaged Communities: will focus on understanding and influencing public behaviour and purchasing decisions relating to low carbon products, using “living laboratories” to ensure that results are robust, tangible and appealing.

The expected outputs and benefits of the CRC are:

• A reduction in built environment carbon emissions by 10MTCO2-e/yr by 2020;

• A projected economic benefit of over $684 million;

• A benefit cost ratio of 2.9:1;

• Adoption of new government policies and industry building models that contribute to achievement of the government’s 2050 greenhouse gas emissions reduction target in the built environment; and • 88 higher degree research students with skills in the low carbon built environment.

Strategic Research Priorities (clause 1.1) Strategic Research Priority Associated Strategic Research Priority Challenge Lifting productivity and economic Maximise Australia’s competitive Research Program 1 growth advantage in critical sectors Manage risk and capture opportunities Research Program 2 Living in a changing environment for sustainable natural and human systems Enable societal transformation to Research Program 3 Living in a changing environment enhance sustainability and wellbeing CRC for Low Carbon Living Ltd | January 2015 Page 1 3. Milestones (clauses 1.1 and 4.1(d))

3.1 Research Program No. 1 - Integrated Building Systems - Output Milestones This program will develop (i) low-carbon-lifecycle building construction components/ materials, and (ii) building-integrated multipurpose solar products. These outputs target next generation construction practice, where step-change emissions cuts are required. New design tools, rating frameworks and Australian Standards will underpin and stimulate the market for low carbon products and services. Design tools and a solar product will be commercialised in partnership with SMEs.

Output Milestones Due date R1.3.1 Report on modelling studies of low carbon designs for Australian 30 June 2013 climatic zones, for new construction and retrofitting.

R1.3.2 Longitudinal study of High Performance Buildings researching correlation with productivity completed.

R1.3.3 Initial low carbon design buildings (Living Laboratories) constructed. 30 June 2014 R1.3.4 Framework of High Performance Building Investment Analysis tool (HPBIA) established and delivered to CRC partners.

R1.3.5 Report on monitoring and verification of performance of new and 30 June 2016 retrofitted low carbon buildings.

R1.3.6 Validation of the HPBDS tool.

R1.3.7 Rating framework/tools for low carbon buildings (new and retrofit) completed.

R1.3.8 Monitoring of showcase designs - detailed evaluation of technical 30 June 2017 performance (Living Laboratories) completed.

R1.3.9 Report on validation and refinement of the HPBDS tool.

R1.3.10 Progress report on low carbon design systems, construction, operation, maintenance, demolition and recycling.

R1.3.11 Report on standards that widen the coverage of Minimum Energy Performance Standards – or Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS) (e.g. novel HVAC systems and integrated solar systems).

R1.3.12 Report on monitoring and verification of large scale residential and 30 June 2018 commercial projects (Living Laboratories).

R1.3.13 Final technical report on low carbon designs for new and retrofitted 30 June 2019 residential and commercial buildings completed.

3.2 Research Program No. 2 - Low Carbon Precincts - Output Milestones This program will develop tools that enable the design of, and stimulate the market for, low carbon infrastructure at the “precinct” scale. This will facilitate property developers and local government partners providing low carbon infrastructure at the development planning point of delivery. An emphasis on research education and training in building information modelling (BIM), and extension to a new precinct scale (PIM) platform, will dramatically improve SME design productivity. Health and productivity co-benefits analysis will demonstrate the increased value and stimulate demand for low carbon precincts.

3.3 Research Program No. 3 - Engaged Communities - Output Milestones This program will focus on understanding and influencing behaviour and purchasing decisions. Policy scenario analysis will quantify the effectiveness of alternative options leading to policy adoption by government partners. New low carbon living strategies that mobilise cultural and social capitals will be demonstrated. CRC research findings will be fully road tested in “living laboratories” to ensure that results are robust, tangible and appealing. Results will be used to develop community education and training resources including for mass media dissemination.
