Trivess Moore is a Research Fellow at RMIT University working in the School of Global, Urban and Social Studies and the School of Property, Construction and Project Management.
Trivess has been at RMIT University since 2006 when he joined the former Centre for Design. He has a strong research interest in energy efficiency, renewable energies, the built environment and transitioning to a low carbon future. He completed his PhD studies in 2012. He is also a listed media expert at RMIT University.
Trivess’ PhD investigated the costs, benefits and requirements for policy regarding a transition to zero emission housing standards in Australia. The research involved significant cost benefit analysis of various zero emission housing options for Melbourne, Australia, as well as an international policy content analysis applying socio-technical transitions theory to identify limitations of existing minimum energy standards for new housing in Australia. The research argues that by taking a through-life perspective, zero emission housing is technically and economically viable in Australia currently. However, there are a number of key limitations of existing minimum energy standards for new housing in Australia which will make a transition to a low carbon housing future difficult unless addressed.
Trivess has also worked on the ARC funded projects 'Carbon Neutral Communities and Lifetime Affordable Housing in Australia'.
