    Local governments can adopt a range of policies and programs to encourage energy efficiency in new construction, existing homes, and new products. To support the programs, local governments also can develop financing options to help lower the cost of making energy . Passive House is a rigorous standard for attaining a high level of energy efficiency. According to the developer, the building is expected to achieve a nearly 90% energy reduction for heating and a 60% to 70% reduction of overall energy use compared with a typical building of the same type and size in the Pacific Northwest region. ASBEC President Ken Maher said: “Given that Australia’s housing is responsible for 13% of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions, this is a good first step towards improving the country’s building stock.” Further efforts are required to ensure that we meet the great potential that the building sector holds, in improving energy.
