What is Building Efficiency?
By definition, building efficiency relates to the overall performance, optimisation activities and control of the greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint of properties and real state.
It is assessed in a determined cycle (usually a year) and calculated by analysing criteria such as energy consumption, building efficiency ratio, heating & cooling performance, average water usage, artificial lighting optimisation and sustainability.
In some cases (as in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth CBD) Complying with Building efficiency requirements and obtaining building energy certificates are compulsory, rated by tools such as NABERS, and can only be performed by NABERS accredited assessors
