Energy Report Victoria
Want to know how energy efficient your house is? This Energy Report will tell you!
An Energy Report will give you a detailed analysis of the energy efficiency of your dwelling and an overall rating so you know where you stand.

This report is a great way to find out how you can improve the use of energy through construction, materials, and layout.

Who might need it?
Under the Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS), all new homes must meet a minimum six-star energy rating (out of 10).
Builders are therefore engaging this report in their early design stages to ensure that their new build will meet these requirements.
Whether you are renovating an existing property, or constructing a new build, this analysis may help inform and influence your decisions.
In order to obtain a building permit, you’ll need to submit your Energy Report.
If you are concerned about the energy efficiency of your building, or meeting this minimum requirement for your new build, an Energy Report may help identify areas where you can improve.
