CHAPTER 1: ABOUT THE GETTING OFF GAS TOOLKIT
How to use the Toolkit
Australia’s homes must be at the centre of the energy transition. Renew’s Getting Off Gas Toolkit provides practical independent resources for households on replacing gas with efficient electric appliances powered by renewables.
The Getting Off Gas Toolkit can be read chapter by chapter, or you can jump ahead to the topics of relevance to you. If you’re not interested in the detail, grab the Getting Off Gas cheat sheet for a quick and easy checklist for your home electrification journey.
Throughout the Toolkit you will find links to external resources, recordings of relevant Renew webinars, all-electric homes featured as part of Renew’s Sustainable House day, or stories from the archives of Sanctuary and Renew magazine. Additionally, a number of case studies detail the experiences of people who have transitioned away from household gas, and a set of handy fact sheets make going all-electric easy.
If you’re interested in making your home more sustainable, you may find a subscription to Renew or Sanctuary valuable. Published by Renew, these magazines are independent, practical, and filled with expert resources and inspiration.
