Future of NABERS Energy

11 May 2020

Over the past decade, the property and energy markets have gone through several transformations, such as the decarbonisation of the grid and the rise in net zero emissions targets.

The Future of NABERS Energy project seeks to adapt NABERS Energy to these trends. NABERS has developed proposals in consultation with a Technical Working Group and the NABERS National Steering Committee, and is now inviting stakeholders to provide feedback.

Key topics in this consultation paper include:

  • Update to the emissions factors used in NABERS
  • Recognition for net zero emissions
  • Enhanced recognition for renewable energy purchases
  • Aligning to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol’s market-based carbon accounting method
  • Renewable energy purchasing

Submissions can be made to nabers@environment.nsw.gov.au via the response form until Friday 12 June 2020.

If you have any questions, please contact Corine Mulet at corine.mulet@environment.nsw.gov.au or 02 9995 6874.


As part of the consultation, NABERS hosted a Webinar on Tuesday 26 May 2020 to present the information in the consultation paper and held a Q&A session.
