Sustainable homes

Are you looking for practical steps to cut energy bills and make your home more comfortable all year round?

Have you been thinking of adapting your home or incorporating sustainable design techniques, and using resilient building materials?

Then, this is for you!

Resilient South, with AdaptWest, Resilient East, and Resilient Hills and Coasts are bringing South Australians a series of FREE webinars covering a range of sustainability and climate ready homes topics.

The webinars will be presented by sustainable home and energy experts from Renew, who have provided independent information on household sustainability for over 40 years.

My Cool Home


Want to design, build or retrofit your environmentally sustainable climate resilient home?

Here are two great resources to help you on your journey.

My Cool Home toolkit can be used to assess the energy efficiency and comfort of the home, whether it be an existing home or one that you are planning – with projected cost savings and optimisation so you can see not just how much more comfortable your home could be, but what the potential bill savings are if certain measures were implemented.

The 3D interactive house and garden has heaps of useful information about:

  • Orientation and comfort
  • Sustainable materials
  • Ideas to make sure your home is warm in winter and cool in summer
  • How to make your home resource efficient, while saving you money on energy and water
  • Retrofitting and designing homes that are adaptable for a climate change future
  • Creating a sustainable climate resilient garden

While the My Cool Home tool is made available for anyone to use we would like to acknowledge AdaptWest Regional Climate Partnership for the development of this tool. Ongoing support is provided by the Regional Climate Partnerships (Resilient South, Resilient East and Resilient Hills and Coasts) and Green Adelaide.

About the webinars

The webinars will be held on Zoom, on Tuesday or Thursday nights between 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

They will all be introduced by a different partner council, have one hour of expert chat, and plenty of time for questions.

All webinars are free to our community.
