OFFICE ENERGY PERFORMANCE
EECA Business in collaboration with the New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) has introduced NABERSNZ™- a scheme to measure and rate the energy performance of office buildings in New Zealand.
The scheme is based on the successful National Australian Building Environmental Rating System (NABERS). It has been adapted for New Zealand conditions by the Energy Management Association of New Zealand (EMANZ).
There are three types of NABERSNZ ratings:
- base building
- whole building
There are two NABERSNZ rating options:
A free online Self Assessment rating is also available to help an office building owner or tenant get an initial idea about how their property might rate. The self assessment tool is a useful first step to understanding and improving your energy use.
An independent NABERSNZ Certified Rating shows exactly how well a building uses energy, compared to other commercial office properties. Certified Ratings range from 0 to 6 stars: the more energy efficient your building, the higher your rating.
Through the process of undertaking the Certified Rating, your Accredited Assessor can help you identify ways to improve energy use and reduce operating costs.
