Renew 156 out now: Green Rebuild Toolkit, bike-sharing schemes, EVSE buyers guide and more!
In Renew 156, there’s an in-depth, multi-part feature on Renew’s project to help bushfire-affected households rebuild sustainably, the Green Rebuild Toolkit; a buyers guide on EVSEs (EV chargers, basically); a detailed look at the proposal that underlies the “solar tax!!!1!11” headlines; The Australia Institute’s Rod Campbell on the climate wars; and an investigation into why bike-share schemes just don’t seem to work in Australia, and what the future might hold for such programs.
There’s also our regular recycling series, which looks at glass this issue; a personal experience of how to deal with solar exports being limited by voltage issues; Bryce Gaton on how safety is paramount when working on EVs; a new prize; our regular member profile, crossword, news, products and Q&A sections; and… more!
In Renew 155, we enter the murky world of e-waste recycling; investigate the phenomenon of microfibre pollution in our oceans; hear from a Renew member who’s lived off-grid for 40 years (specifically, his experience with batteries); throw down the gauntlet to the great Aussie lawn; and make the case for mandatory disclosure of home energy efficiency ratings.Read more
