Dr Rowan Bedggood, Ciaran O’Mahony, Flyn Pervan, Dr Petra Buergelt

In response to unearthing these co-benefits, GEER Australia (GEER) was commissioned by Energy Consumers Australia (ECA) to conduct a detailed analysis of the 20 final LIEEP reports to identify and synthesise these co-benefit findings, and provide deeper understanding and insights of each co-benefit experienced by householders. The purpose of this report is to summarise the outcomes of both the measured and non-measured co-benefits referred to in LIEEP reports, and to identify which ones improved the most.

Rowan Bedggood, Ciaran O’Mahony, Flynn Pervan, Petra Buergelt

The objective of this report is to present the findings of a detailed analysis of the co-benefits experienced by low-income households who participated in the Commonwealth Government’s national Low-Income Energy Efficiency Project (LIEEP). A co-benefit is considered a beneficial aspect that is experienced by the householder as a result of the initiative trialled, beyond reducing energy consumption and/or bills. This co-benefits analysis adds to understanding the outcome and impact of LIEEP, beyond the changes in energy use, bills and associated behaviours. This report will demonstrate the array of benefits participants experienced that can have a significant impact on their overall wellbeing.
