The Building Code Energy Performance Trajectory is aiming to develop a forward trajectory for future energy performance targets for new construction. The Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council (ASBEC) and ClimateWorks Australia invite the industry to contribute a range of case studies of existing residential buildings that already meet energy performance levels beyond what is required by the current National Construction Code (NCC).
Submissions close Tuesday, 26 September 2017
This initiative intends to present a number of different building case studies that provide a snapshot of leading low-energy buildings across all sectors, sizes, locations and energy performance levels (ranging from just above current standards all the way to net zero energy or carbon).
The purpose of these case studies is to:
All case studies should have one or more of the following:
Practitioners who have ideas for case studies that you would like to contribute, please either:
Note that this request is separate and parallel to the work being undertaken by the Australian Building Codes Board to develop case studies specific to the proposed updates to Volume Two of the NCC 2019.
These case studies will be featured in an Interim Report to be launched towards the end of 2017, which responds to an Issues Paper on this project, issued in July 2017.
