NABERS rating improvements

Part of the Energy Safeguard Scheme

Are you getting a NABERS energy rating for a building in NSW? You may be eligible for a financial incentive to help businesses reduce their energy use.  

These incentives are available under the NSW Government Energy Savings Scheme (ESS). Find an approved supplier in your region below. 

Incentives are available for office buildings that expect to get a NABERS energy rating of: 

  • at least 0.5 star higher than that of average office building stock 
  • at least 0.5 star higher than the building’s historical NABERS energy rating. 

Incentives are site specific and depend on: 

  • the size of your building 
  • your NABERS star rating. 

Different approved suppliers may offer different deals. 

How this helps your business 

A higher NABERS energy rating may help you: 

  • reduce operating costs 
  • increase market value and rental income 
  • reduce vacancy rates 
  • reduce greenhouse gas emissions and environmental impact. 

Use the NABERS ESC Estimator 

The NABERS ESC Estimator provides an estimate for how many Energy Saving Certificates (ESC) you can potentially generate by improving your building’s efficiency. 

It will also help you understand if your building is eligible for a financial incentive. Access the ESC Estimator.

Access the incentive 

Before getting your NABERS energy rating, contact an approved supplier. They will: 

  • explain the process 
  • get you the incentive. 

Approved suppliers may be a different business to your NABERS accredited assessor. If so, make sure you work with both to get your incentive and NABERS rating. 

Check to see if there is an approved supplier in your region

Note that suppliers listed in a region may not serve the whole region. When you contact an approved supplier they will confirm whether they operate in your location.  

If you are unsure about which region you are in, please check for your postcode in this document
