Daniel Burmester

Daniel Burmester strongly believes that if you’re teaching something, you should have real life experience in it. After a lot of research into budget-friendly and sustainable alternatives to renting, Daniel discovered the tiny house movement, and built his own tiny house on a 3,000 square metre section in Pinehaven, Wellington.

Daniel now lives “off the grid” in a 2.5 metre by 8 metre home that relies on renewable energy. Using his house as a case study, Daniel will talk about the considerations when going to renewables.


A lecturer and researcher in the School of Engineering and Computer Science, Victoria University of Wellington, Daniel’s work focuses on controlled “nanogrids” in order to better utilise rooftop solar power. Daniel is also interested in the effective utilisation of waste heat.
