The wave of change impacting the energy industry globally is accelerating, leading to rapid and transformational change in how electricity is generated, bought, sold and distributed.

The long weekend is here, and many Australians are likely about to jaunt off on a quick break to make the most of the extended time off.

Synergy is excited to announce a partnership with Josh Byrne & Associates in a two year research project conducted by Curtin University and CRC for Low Carbon Living called “Living Labs.” The research project will focus on ten Perth suburban households who have been challenged to reduce their environmental footprint in some way, be it with solar panels on the roof, water tanks collecting rain or low energy lighting and appliances.

Synergy chief executive officer Jason Waters said there had been a significant spike in the amount of electricity being used across the south west of the state this winter as households increased the use of heating appliances to counter colder temperatures.
