Hidden Gem of
The West

Albion is a hidden gem, quiet streets with a mix of federation and weatherboard homes and now ZERO homes. Walk around the corner and have a beautiful coffee and breakfast in the celebrated Saddie Black cafe – it’s Brunswick good. A short bike ride or good walk to the supermarkets, shops and cafes to Sunshine Town Centre. A short walk to Albion train station, the train ride is then just 15 minutes to Melbourne Central.

Tri Battery Technology

Strategically designed from the roof down, our homes are engineered for sustainable power usage and to save you money for the life of the home. Think of the savings on electricity and petrol throughout the years! The savings with be massive, allowing you to have the freedom to choose other lifestyle options.

How ZERO Living uses Tri Battery Technology

The ZERO energy homes at 47 Derrimut Street, Albion promises to deliver ZERO energy living bills and the comfort you wish for. These homes incorporate the learnings achieved to date from the collaborative ZERO energy building project between Swinburne University of Technology and ZERO Living.

The joint study used three purpose built ZERO energy homes, as a living laboratory where on-site PV energy production, storage and consumption are monitored real-time and analysed. The results demonstrate that achieving a carbon negative energy home and ZERO energy bills is feasible.

These new ZERO energy homes will be monitored real-time remotely by Swinburne University of Technology, during the operation to ensure that it meets a ZERO energy standard. Occupants of these smart homes will be provided with a home driving manual and timely feedback, just like any other type of machinery, to help them get the best out of these homes.

The owners of these smart homes will help to build a sustainable community, as their data will contribute to the future construction of ZERO energy homes.
