Portal boosts energy star performance

Planning the next wave of sustainable homes received a boost when CSIRO released a new data portal that tracks energy efficiency progress across Australia.  

The Australian Housing Data (AHD) Portal shows that the average newly-constructed home has an energy rating of 6.2 stars which is a significant increase above the estimated 1.8 rating for an average home when star ratings were introduced in 2001. 

The Portal contains data across states and climate zones and can be further broken down by design (e.g. dwelling class and floor area), construction (e.g. type of walls and roofing) and fixtures and appliances (e.g. solar PV and heating/cooling systems).
