NABERS (Australia)

Assesses the greenhouse emission intensity of office buildings

NABERS - the National Australian Built Environment Rating System - is a performance-based rating system for existing buildings. NABERS rates a building on the basis of its measured operational impacts on the environment, and provides a simple indication of how well you are managing these environmental impacts compared with your peers and neighbours.

Provides assessments of the greenhouse intensity of office buildings by awarding a star rating on a scale of one to five. Buildings identified by the Australian Building Greenhouse Rating scheme with a high star rating will be more energy efficient and cheaper to run, and will result in lower greenhouse gas emissions. Separate components of the building can be rated - a base building rating measures the performance of those services provided by the building manager/landlord; and a tenancy rating measures the services for which the tenant is responsible. A whole building rating measures the combined effect.

The software tool uses information gathered from the existing building to benchmark the energy performance against the national Australian property market. Building owners, managers, tenants and investors can use the tool to self assess to roughly ascertain their property's performance.

Unique tool for providing insight into the actual energy and greenhouse performance of your office building against the national property market, enabling informed decision making on energy efficiency improvments. Useful for determining actual savings from implemented energy efficiency measures, by normalising the operational data for changes in usage patterns.
