Outcomes on NCC 2022 Energy Efficiency Proposals from ABCB

December 15, 2019

The scoping study outlined a proposed approach and scope of future proposed changes, with a particular focus on the 2022 edition of the NCC. The scoping study was prepared in consideration of the Council of Australian Governments Energy Council’s Trajectory for Low Energy Buildings (the Trajectory) and subsequent decision of the Building Ministers’ Forum in support of progressing work for improved energy efficiency standards in the NCC. The Trajectory’s overarching policy objectives include: reducing energy bills; improving the reliability of energy networks; reducing greenhouse gas emissions; and to providing industry with certainty about future regulatory changes.

These submissions provided the ABCB with valuable quantitative and qualitative information that has been summarised and released in the Outcomes report. The report identifies considerations that will shape the next stages of the project.
