26 November 2013 — There is a growing concern that the actual energy efficiency of buildings in Australia – both new builds and renovations/additions – may not always match the energy performance requirements in the National Construction Code. The National Energy Efficient Building Project aims to understand why this discrepancy exists, the extent and what could and should be done to address the problem.

The project, being rolled out by pitt&sherry and Swinburne University, is now undergoing a national industry consultation process.

For interested parties, there are four ways to get involved:

  • attend a workshop
  • complete a brief online survey
  • make a submission
  • have a private meeting or conversation with the NEEBP team
