ARBS 2022 seminar highlight:

Dr Elyse Stanes of University of Wollongong: Better Ways to Work: Improving HVAC performance through maintenance.

This panel will present their knowledge, which they gained during a two-year interdisciplinary qualitative project delivered in partnership with the Australian government Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (DISER) and various industry peak bodies. The focus of our research has been on older, poorer quality buildings in the commercial sector - otherwise known as the mid-tier. In commercial buildings - like those in the mid-tier, HVAC systems are typically the largest end-use of energy. In this panel, we'll expand on our research which sought to explore the diverse skills required to repair and maintain and upgrade HVAC&R systems.

Some key points that will be covered in the panel include:

• Why a focus on mid-tier buildings is so important in the Australian built environment.

• What the problem is: Evidence from high-end buildings suggests there is substantial cost in developing positive energy efficiency improvements in this sector. 

• What we did: Our research looked at the importance of maintenance for energy efficiency. 

• Insights on what we've found: The HVAC&R workforce is well-positioned to work with building owners and tenants to improve the energy performance of Australia’s existing building stock.
