A second response from Waterwise into this ongoing inquiry into how we can can improve energy efficiency in our homes. Our response focussed on the important role that water efficiency can play in reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions due to hot water use. A 5% reduction in household water consumption would save more carbon than was actually achieved in the whole residential sector in 2017-18 and 2018-19.
