Issue 152 July - September 2020 is out now! Winter issue - includes a household battery guide.
Renew 152 is out now, and features our updated guide to household battery systems. We look at features to look for (including blackout backup) and provide a table of the systems available. We also look at how the industry has changed since our last guide in 2017.
The recent coronavirus lockdown and enforced home working has made many of us reconsider our home offices. We hope our guide to the energy-efficient home office can help all those experiencing both short and longer term home-based working.
Renew's not-for-profit publisher is calling for Australia's COVID-19 recovery to build resilience in cities. We list seven practical steps to get there, including building and retrofitting energy-efficient housing, investing in local industries that make clever use of our renewable energy resources and using the opportunity to rethink the ways our transport systems and suburbs are built.
As always, there's more. We look at the sustainability of compostable plastics, an issue that raises many questions about the larger problem of plastic waste. We present our solar modelling calculator's approach to calculating the impacts of overshadowing on solar systems. We hear about a project in Timor Leste that's using open-source plans to build plastic recycling machines that are cleaning up the beaches and providing an income for locals. And we look into whether using your EV's battery to power your home is just around the corner. Plus much more-enjoy!
