How energy efficient is your building,hotel, shopping centre or data centre?

You can benchmark your facility’s performance against national averages with an approved NABERS rating. A good rating will demonstrate value to tenants and customers and enhance the returns your facility can generate. A low rating will provide the basis for an improvement program which will improve profitability and can attract financial assistance in the form of Energy Saving Certificates.

What is NABERS?

The National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) is a national program designed to rate a building's operational performance against a number of benchmarks. NABERS is available for office buildings, hotels, shopping centres and data centres.

NABERS benchmarks the greenhouse gas emissions from the operational performance of an office building on a scale of one (1) to five (5), with one having the most greenhouse gas emissions and five the least. A NABERS Energy rating of three (3) stars represents current market best practice.

The Green Star Rating System utilises the NABERS methodology in order to assess the predicted energy consumption of a building design. NABERS measures real operational performance.

Who Can Have a NABERS Rating?

The NABERS Program currently allows the following building types to be star rated:

  • Office Buildings
  • Shopping Centres
  • Office Tenancy
  • Hotels
