Welcome to Habitat.

Momentum Energy is owned by Hydro Tasmania, Australia’s largest generator of renewable energy. We are passionate about renewable energy and believe in a more sustainable future for Australia.

At Habitat, we want to share new discoveries that can help you at work or home, including the latest ideas and expert insights, to help you reduce your energy usage and costs and empower you to live and work more sustainably.

These new discoveries can help you at work or home, and range anywhere from more sustainable design in an upcoming renovation; adopting innovative technology or better managing how and why we use energy.

While new designs and technologies can be initially costly, many simple ideas have the potential to reduce your energy usage and to save you money in turn.

At home

Sustainable home choices you can make are wide ranging. These include different housing layouts, building materials, appliances and technologies. There are also many ways of insulating, heating, cooling and powering your home that can reduce your energy costs. You can use energy efficient lighting and power point timers, solar roof panels, double glazed windows and install rainwater collection systems.

At a more immediate level, you can change behaviours by using less water, turning off lights when you leave a room and running appliances at cheaper times of the day. All of these and more can help your household live a more sustainable and cheaper lifestyle.

At work

With technology continually improving and becoming more available and cheaper, businesses can become more sustainable while lowering their costs at the same time. For example, many already use video conferencing to reduce travel costs.

In addition online purchasing can increase efficiencies; telephony costs can be reduced using IP telephones; energy efficient lighting can reduce your business’ electricity and maintenance costs; and more power-efficient design in your office or workplace can also reduce your heating and cooling costs.

While we’ll seek out and share sustainable living ideas with you, we’d also love to hear from you. If you’ve got a sustainable idea that will reduce costs or perhaps you’ve seen – or written an interesting article – please get in touch and tell us about it.
