Trajectory for Low Energy Homes Stakeholder workshops
The national Stakeholder Reference Group workshop for the trajectory for low energy homes project will be held in Perth on 21 June 2018.
The free information session, also being held in Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne, aims to seek feedback from stakeholders on the initial findings from the cost benefit analysis and the draft report.
Date and time: Thursday 21 June 2018, 10.00am–12.30pm

COAG Energy Council’s National Energy Productivity Plan 2015-2030 (NEPP) provides a framework and an initial economy-wide work plan designed to accelerate action to deliver a 40% improvement in Australia’s energy productivity by 2030. NEPP Measure 31 aims to advance the National Construction Code (NCC).
Under this measure, a research project in collaboration with AECOM considered a ‘whole of house’ approach to achieving net zero energy/carbon buildings for new and existing dwellings. The research project analysed current residential building typologies (built form, appliances and energy use) and future residential building stocks in each jurisdiction, using modelling by the CSIRO developed AusZEH software.
This analysis is being used to inform a more detailed cost benefit analysis and the development of a trajectory for future residential building energy efficiency reforms, including potentially through the NCC.
