Six star scoping study

The Department of Industry, Innovation and Science contracted AEF to undertake a scoping study for an evaluation of the benefits and costs resulting from the introduction of the 6-star energy efficiency standard for housing in the Building Code of Australia from 2010.

This required us to review the methodology used by CSIRO for evaluating the costs and benefits resulting from the introduction of the 5 star standard and to propose at least one, or alternative options for a statistically valid, cost effective methodology for undertaking a study to evaluate the actual costs and benefits of the 6 star standard.

AEF delivered the project in partnership with Pitt & Sherry.
