A study into energy use in the Australian and New Zealand Residential Sectors which was previously undertaken in 2015.

The 2021 RBS develops a model for projecting energy consumption for all categories of residential appliances and equipment until 2040. The study includes several objectives such as potential peak electricity demand during extreme weather events, alterations to appliance efficiency and building efficiency and use of fuel technologies.
