Port Phillip Council’s My Climate

Created by the CSIRO for Port Phillip Council, My Climate’s thermal mapping shows surface temperatures for homes in the area from aerial flyovers and temporary weather stations, supplying a starting point to best tackle your energy bills and carbon emissions.

It won’t provide a complete solution, but helps you identify your roof ’s solar energy and water capturing potential, plus heat loss and solar gain with its user-friendly locator device. For tailored suggestions on purchasing energy efficient or renewable solutions, direct advice would be needed (such as an ATA consultation, or by our Tankulator or Sunulator tools). While created specifically for the Port Phillip area, various councils are looking to better map the urban heat effect – ask yours if they offer a similar service.
