ReNew: technology for a sustainable future features roofing materials and their sustainability in its latest issue, out now.
As well as materials, ReNew looks at the importance of roof pitch, insulation and colour to a house’s thermal performance.
And there’s an examination of green roofs – how growing plants can make your roof perform better than conventional materials.
With more than 1.5 million roofs with solar panels in Australia, now is a good time to investigate the feasibility of a 100 per cent renewable energy grid. Alternative Technology Association (ATA) experts Andrew Reddaway and Damien Moyse do just that, finding a fully renewable grid would provide long-term climate, social and economic benefits.
Plus, there’s an EV owner’s insights into charging, DIY earth bricks and wicking beds, an introduction to timber finishes, islands switching to renewables and an external shading buyers guide.
