- Newington, NSW
The “Smart Home’ will be a real-life laboratory developed within an existing house in Sydney’s Newington, which already includes a range of energy-saving technologies. This ‘house of the future’ will be refitted to showcase and test new technologies to reduce household energy and water use, including alternative electricity supply and storage options, such as micro-generation and battery storage technology, fully interactive smart metering to manage real-time consumption at every point, and the benefits of a HAN environment. The project will support a cutting-edge electric vehicle.
The Smart Home will be integrated with EnergyAustralia’s Smart Village program for newington, which will use the best energy and water management technology available to give 1,000 households the ability to reduce their environmental footprint and their household utility bills.
The Smart Home will accommodate a family who will report live on their experience with the new technologies as they are installed. TZG is working with Ellen Woolley Architects on this forward looking project.
