This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Passive solar design is a cornerstone of any sustainable build or renovation. Well-designed passive solar homes require very little heating and cooling, and stay comfortable all
year round at very low cost. In this session, we’ll explore passive solar design principles, and how to get them right. In the second half of this session we’ll open up a panel discussion and Q&A session with our experts.

Please note that this session will start at 6:30pm (AEST) and end between 8 - 8:30pm (AEST), depending on audience questions. The session will be recorded and sent out to registered participants.
