Raising New Home Energy Standards
On February 1, Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Energy Ministers made a commitment to lift energy ratings for new homes to 6.5 or 7 stars. The changes are due to come into effect in the National Construction Code in 2022. They are outlined in the Trajectory for Low Energy Buildings, a national plan towards zero-energy (and carbon) ready buildings passed by the Ministers.
Donna Luckman, CEO of Renew (formerly Alternative Technology Association - ATA), will present on her advocacy work behind the COAG’s recent commitment to lift energy ratings. She will also discuss further policy changes Renew is pushing for new and existing homes and the reasons why these are important for Australia’s energy future.
This event is held in collaboration with Beyond Zero Emissions (BZE). It will be recorded and available via BZE
