Specialist lighting retailer training
Lighting retail stores are well positioned to assist customers to make lighting choices that result in more efficient energy use and good light quality for their homes.
The specialist lighting retailer training package consists of a retailer guide and suite of residential case studies designed to help retailers support their customers to choose efficient lighting solutions that meet their needs.
Resources for plumbers
Several states and territories now have regulations regarding the types of water heaters that can be installed in homes, which generally promote the installation of low greenhouse gas emission water heaters. As a result of these regulations and the availability of government incentives, the number of heat pump water heaters being installed is expected to increase.
The Plumber Training Handbook and Plumber Reference Guide are resources to assist plumbers in installing heat pump hot water systems. They are a useful resource for plumbers and other installers of solar and heat pump water heating technologies, and will help installers to update their installation skills and techniques.
Training Guide: The Basics of Efficient Lighting
The Basics of Efficient Lighting reference manual is a joint initiative of the E3 Program and the National Electrical and Communications Association (NECA).
The manual introduces the basic concepts of light and lighting, and explores the key requirements of a lighting system and what standards need to be met. It also explains what is meant by sustainability and energy efficiency and how good lighting design can contribute to these.
