Home Sustainability

Since 1982, CERES has been deeply committed to a reduction in resource use. Technology, efficiency and education are drivers for this reduction.

Some of our demonstrations, such as the Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) principles embodied in our buildings are easily applied to a domestic context. The CERES Zero Emissions EcoHouse has been set up to be a working demonstration of a typical home, converted to encompass zero-emissions technology.

CERES staff are also on hand to guide you on your own zero-emissions journey, either through guided tours of the EcoHouse (see more information by clicking on the button to the right), or by coming to your home and providing a detailed analysis of energy efficiency measures that you can take. Whether you are a home-owner or renter, advice can be given on heating/cooling, insulation, lighting, glazing and much more. Find out more by clicking on “Home Sustainability” to the right.
