2023 ACT Pearcey Round Table
Towards Net Zero in ACT Apartments
Tuesday, 17 October 2023
At the 2022 ACT Pearcey Round Table, the Chief Minister, Andrew Barr, challenged the Pearcey Foundation Members and Friends to research ideas that would assist the Green Energy Transition (GET) in the ACT. It was decided to concentrate on Apartment Buildings as they represented a considerable challenge when it comes to the electrification process.
A report with recommendations was prepared and submitted to the ACT Integrated Energy Strategy.

Each team to pitch for 2 minutes and answer questions for 1 minute.
Aim to define an acceptable way of funding the Green Energy Transition (GETFundACT)
Unless complexity is reduced 50% of ACT population (living in apartments) will not assist the Green Energy Transition.
There must be scope for a business that can assist the Body Corporation with the complex rules and installation at apartments.
People need at least near real time measurement to enable the juggling of sun/heat/cook/EV/Hot Water/etc.
Tasked to come up with innovative and efficient communication.
What changes must be made to insure there are enough skilled electricians to complete the work.
A fantastic idea that encourages the cooperation of a whole suburb and seeks to run a test site in ACT.
Governments are mandating the removal of gas and (apartment) residents need to find solutions for Hot Water and Heating.
LOCAL AUTONOMOUS EV
Autonomous EVs (slow speed) are entirely suitable to cruise around a suburb from home to office/tram/shops/school/doctor/etc for benefit of the suburb dwellers.
Why not apartment batteries and community shared batteries as well as shared solar energy generation facilities.
ANY OTHER IDEAS
The participants are encouraged to consult with other teams or merely enjoy the Red Tonic and come up with any other crazy ideas.
