Birdsville Case Study

In the summer of 2013, 29 consecutive days were 40ºC or more in Birdsville and Australian weathermen were forced to invent a new colour for temperature charts as the heat was predicted to break record temperatures. To demonstrate the effectiveness of insulation at keeping buildings comfortable from climatic extremes and reduce energy costs, a team from Knauf Insulation with the help of the Diamantina Shire Council and Birdsville locals installed insulation into every viable home and public building in town as a DIY initiative.
