Consultation – Recognising uptake of renewable energy

Over the past two years NABERS has been consulting on how best to adapt to the emerging energy trends. These trends include the decarbonisation of the grid and the increasing number of net zero targets amongst others.

NABERS has engaged through several channels, such as our previous public consultation. As a direct result of the feedback gathered so far, this new consultation paper seeks feedback on one additional change being proposed. This change involves the retirement of the NABERS Energy with GreenPower rating tool. We are keen to understand any impacts from the retirement of this tool, and how they might be addressed. 

Key topics in this consultation paper include: 

  • Summary of changes approved so far as part of the Future of NABERS Energy 

  • How NABERS seeks to reward the use of renewable energy, by: Introducing a Renewable Energy Indicator, and  Retiring the NABERS Energy with GreenPower rating tool  

Note that NABERS will continue to support and recognise the purchase of GreenPower. 

Submissions can be made to nabers [at] environment.nsw.gov.au via the response form until Monday 25 October 2021. 

If you have any questions please contact Clemente Allende at clemente.allende [at] environment.nsw.gov.au or 02 9995 6638.
