What is NABERS?

NABERS (the National Australian Built Environment Rating System) is a national initiative managed by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage.

It is a performance-based energy rating system for existing buildings. Buildings are given a rating (0 – 6 stars) based on their measured operational impact on the environment – allowing buildings to be compared with their peers.

The NABERS Energy rating also provides information about the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the operation of the building.

NABERS Energy helps owners and tenants reduce their energy usage, costs and greenhouse emissions. Furthermore – it is now a legal requirement to have a NABERS rating when selling or leasing some buildings.

The Commercial Building Disclosure scheme (CBD scheme) now requires a Building Energy Efficiency Certificate, including a NABERS Energy rating, to be disclosed when office space of more than 2,000m2 is offered for lease or sale.

NABERS Energy ratings disclosed under the CBD program must either be base building or whole building ratings.

How can AURA help with NABERS?

Aura, not only schedules after hours air conditioning but provides detailed, accurate usage reports which can be used for your building’s NABERS assessment.

This is especially important if your building is being assessed on its energy used during office hours, as the after hours a/c usage can be deducted from the total giving you a higher, more accurate NABERS rating.
