Energy efficiency for residential buildings: Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) heating and cooling load limits
Regulation Impact Statement for Consultation – The Australian Building Codes Board
On 2 March 2018, the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) released a Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) which examines options to facilitate efficient energy use in both summer and winter for some new residential buildings. These options include separate energy limits for heating and cooling loads under the current Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) compliance pathway as well as an education program aimed at builders and building designers.
The Consultation RIS has been assessed by the OBPR and complies with the COAG requirements for COAG Consultation RISs.
