    Green Power | Financing a Clean Economy

    Green Power | Financing a Clean Economy

    How can finance be used to have a positive impact at scale?

    The Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) is helping to cut carbon emissions by investing $10 billion on behalf of the Australian Government – in agriculture, cleantech innovation, energy generation and storage, infrastructure, property, transport and waste.

    In this episode, Laura Phillips, Head of Urban Advocacy at HIP V. HYPE sits down with Liam Wallis, Director at HIP V. HYPE and Ryan Rathborne, Joint Head of Property at the Clean Energy Finance Corporation to discuss how clean finance can drive the shift to a clean energy economy.

    Efficiency First | Designing for Passive House

    Efficiency First | Designing for Passive House

    Originating in Germany in 1992, the Passive House methodology provides for energy efficient homes that support healthy indoor air quality and year-round thermal and acoustic comfort. Certified Passive Houses are underpinned by the five Passive House foundational principles of appropriate insulation, no uncontrolled air leakage, mechanical heat recovery ventilation, windows that insulate and seal and no thermal bridges.

    In this episode, Laura Phillips, Head of Urban Advocacy at HIP V. HYPE sits down with Clare Parry, Better Buildings Lead at HIP V. HYPE and Founding Chair of Passive House Australia, Marcus Strang, Senior Consultant in the Better Buildings team at HIP V. HYPE and Andy Marlow, Architect at Envirotecture to discuss how to design a Passive House.

    Next Life | Repurposing Materials

    Next Life | Repurposing Materials

    Construction sites generate an enormous amount of waste.

    Research from RMIT found that in 2017, 20.4 million tonnes of construction and demolition waste was generated in Australia. 33% of this waste went into landfills, with the rest either illegally dumped, stockpiled, recycled or reused.

    What if instead of sending these materials to landfill, they can be salvaged and repurposed for a second life including as joinery and furniture. 

    Revival Projects is the only builder in Australia to hold domestic and commercial registration, whilst operating a 100% sustainable manufacturing facility, exclusively using recycled materials.

    In this episode, Laura Phillips, Head of Urban Advocacy at HIP V. HYPE, sits down with Rob Neville, founder of Revival Projects and Liam Wallis, Director at HIP V. HYPE to discuss how the construction industry can better repurpose materials and embrace the circular economy.

    More information on Revival Projects can be found here.

    Driving Change | Integrating Electric Vehicle Infrastructure

    Driving Change | Integrating Electric Vehicle Infrastructure

    With our ample solar and wind power resources, Australia has the opportunity to lead the global transition to a net zero carbon economy.

    Transport currently contributes 17% of Australia’s total carbon emissions, with internal combustible engine (ICE) vehicles responsible for around half of these emissions. Electric vehicles (EVs), when complemented by a diversified public and active transport system, are essential to reducing our emissions. However, at around double the cost of an average vehicle, EVs are beyond the reach of many Australians.

    In this episode, Laura Phillips, Head of Urban Advocacy at HIP V. HYPE, sits down with Tim Washington, Founder at JET Charge and Charge Fox and Liam Wallis, Director at HIP V. HYPE to discuss how transitioning to EVs is critical to reducing our emissions, improving public health and driving the growth of a clean energy economy.

    Circular Economy | Rethinking Linear Consumption

    Circular Economy | Rethinking Linear Consumption

    Victoria is expected to produce 40% more annual waste by 2046 than it did in the 2017–18 year. Strengthening our recycling system is critical, however it is not the panacea to our waste challenge. How can we reduce and reuse materials we consume before they produce carbon emissions, end up in landfill or pollute our environment?

    In this episode, Laura Phillips, Head of Urban Advocacy at HIP V. HYPE, sits down with Kate Dundas, Director of Strategic Foresight and Research at Sustainability Victoria and Kate Nicolazzo, General Manager Sustainability at HIP V. HYPE to discuss how Victoria can transition to a circular economy.

    For more information on the circular economy head to Sustainability Victoria, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the Productivity Commission's Right to Repair Draft Report and the Art of Frugal Hedonism by Adam Grubb and Annie Raser-Rowland.

    The Cost of Inaction | Modelling Climate Risk

    The Cost of Inaction | Modelling Climate Risk

    The urgency of climate change has been notoriously challenging to communicate. Whilst the science is clear, a lack of immediate, tangible risk has plagued political will on climate action for decades. Extreme weather events felt across the World, and in Australia in particular in recent years has finally started to shift mainstream public sentiment. However, for those whose job it is to quantify risk, the predicted impacts of climate change are thoroughly modelled.

    Rapidly shifting expectations of government accountability, organisational governance and corporate fiduciary duties have been driven by a growing body of climate change litigation, shareholder activism and of course motivation to protect the bottom line.  

    In this episode, Laura Phillips head of Urban Advocacy at HIP V. HYPE is joined by Alex Pui, the Head of Natural Catastrophes and Sustainability in the Asia Pacific for insurance group, Swiss RE and Gavin Ashley, Better Cities & Regions Lead at HIP V. HYPE to discuss the very real considerations of climate risk.
