Trajectory for low energy buildings

4 Feb 2019
Description

COAG Energy Ministers have agreed upon the Trajectory for Low Energy Buildings, a national plan that sets a trajectory towards zero energy (and carbon) ready buildings for Australia.

The Trajectory identifies opportunities for the building sector in the context of a broader trajectory for the sector, and in summary proposes:

  • Setting a trajectory towards zero energy (and carbon) ready buildings
  • Implementing cost effective increases to the energy efficiency provisions in the National Construction Code (NCC) for residential and commercial buildings from 2022
  • Considering options for improving existing buildings in late 2019.

The Trajectory seeks to inform the future activities of the Building Ministers' Forum and the Australian Building Codes Board when developing and implementing updates to the NCC, and to inform further Energy Council activities around building policy measures.
