NSW Government Resource Efficiency Policy Update

Monday, 4 March 2019

Last week, the NSW Government launched an updated version of its Government Resource Efficiency Policy (GREP). The policy has helped establish a minimum NABERS Energy and Water requirements for leasing buildings to the NSW State Government. Similar requirements are in place for most States and the Australian Government.

One development that might be particularly relevant for building owners and Assessors is that energy efficiency requirements for leasing office buildings to the NSW Government has improved from 4.5 to 5 stars NABERS Energy, from June 2020. This means NSW now joins South Australia as the first two jurisdictions to lift their government leasing requirements to 5 stars NABERS Energy.
