NCC 2022 set to lift home energy efficiency

Published

Building Ministers have agreed to lift the energy standards of new homes through the National Construction Code (NCC).

As of NCC 2022, new homes and apartments will need to achieve the equivalent of “7 stars” NatHERS thermal performance.

A new annual energy use budget has been introduced for the first time.  The budget will apply to the home’s major appliances such as heating and cooling equipment, hot water systems, lighting, swimming pool pumps, and onsite renewable energy systems.

This is a significant step towards achieving zero energy and zero carbon buildings in Australia.
