Evaluation of whether the new 5-star standard was achieving its goals as analysed in the 2006 Regulatory Impact Statement.
The Green Lease Handbook complements the Tenant's Guide and contains more detailed legal and technical information.
This study investigated new house construction around Australia to gain insight into the quality of house construction with regard to the energy efficiency aspects of air‐tightness and quality of installation of insulation and heating/cooling ductwork and involved recruiting 20 houses in each capital city around Australia (Darwin was not included).
It followed concerns raised that the energy efficiency features of houses that are required to achieve the minimum energy efficiency standards in the National Construction Code (NCC) (Australian Building Codes Board, 2015) were not delivering assessed benefits For example where insulation and weather sealing is poorly installed by builders houses will have lower energy efficiency performance than expected. This filled a gaps in research with little data previously collected on newly built houses to quantify air‐tightness and assess the quality of installation of insulation and heating/cooling ductwork.
Advice on ways to save on household energy bills.
This report was commissioned by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science as an input to Measure 31 in the National Energy Productivity Plan, 'Advancing the National Construction Code'.
This report was commissioned by the Department of the Environment and Energy who have managed the project on behalf all Australian jurisdictions under Measure 31.2 of the National Energy Productivity Plan.
The guide provides an overview of the basic concepts and elements of Green Leasing, to assist private tenants to achieve better environmental outcomes from the leasing and on-going management of their office space.
