This document is Part 2 of the Building Energy Efficiency Task-group (BEET) Project “International Review of Residential Building Energy Efficiency Rating Schemes” commissioned by the Department of the Environment and Energy. Therefore, this document is intended to be read and used in conjunction with the BEET 5 Report – International Review of Residential Building Energy Efficiency Ratings Schemes.
The outcome being targeted by the National Residential Building Ratings and Disclosure Schemes is “Improved energy productivity of residential buildings by providing information to the housing market that allows home owners, buyers and tenants to understand, compare, value and act upon the energy performance of existing and new residential buildings”. This is being driven by the “National Energy Productivity Plan 2015–2030”. This paper provides a set of best practice principles that will support jurisdictions to contribute to the National Energy Productivity Plan.
