Commercial buildings

23 September 2015
‚ÄčCFI ERF

The commercial buildings method allows for projects that reduce emissions associated with the consumption of electricity or fossil fuels at a commercial building.

The method applies to activities to improve the energy performance of at least one star in the NABERS energy rating for each building, in one or more existing commercial buildings that have, or are eligible to have, National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) energy ratings.

The method does not specify the particular activities that must be undertaken, but requires that the activities fall under the following broad categories:

  • modifying, installing, removing or replacing:
    • energy-consuming equipment
    • equipment that generates electricity for consumption at the building
    • a building component or other equipment
  • changing how energy-consuming equipment is controlled or operated
  • changing the energy sources used by energy-consuming equipment, and
  • promoting behaviours by occupants of the building that reduce energy consumption by energy-consuming equipment at the building.
