Well known energy efficiency expert Alan Pears will speak on sustainable building in Warragul on Thursday 22 August.

The event is open to everyone and will be of particular interest to people building a new home, renovating or just wanting to learn more about saving energy in the home.


The title of Alan Pears’ talk is ‘The Politics and Practice of Sustainable Building’. The event is part of a monthly program organised by the Baw Baw Sustainability Network, an independent, not-for-profit group bridging the gap between talk and action on sustainable living.

With the Baw Baw Shire Council’s draft settlement plan showing that the shire’s population is set to double in 25 years, now is a good time to be discussing how to create housing as energy efficient as possible. This will result in lower energy costs to householders over the long term, more comfortable home living and a healthier environment for us all.

Alan Pears is an energy and climate researcher from RMIT and a well known commentator on energy and climate issues in Australia. He is a regular columnist in Renew and The Business Spectator, and writes articles for the Age. Over his long career in the energy and environment sector Alan has been involved with a large range of Advisory Services & developing regulations & ratings.

The presentation will be held at the Pettit Centre, 31-35 Gladstone St, Warragul at 7.30 pm, Thursday 22 August. Everyone is welcome and a donation would be greatly appreciated. For further information see or call 5634 2854.
