He has masters degrees in both Engineering (Electronics) and Environment (Energy Efficiency).  He was a key author of the Zero Carbon Australia Buildings Plan and a regular contributor to the Renew’s publications on topics related to energy efficiency.  Richard lives in Melbourne with his family in their zero-carbon home.  Richard is the author of The Energy Freedom Home published by Scribe.
