Trajectory for Low Energy Homes: Draft document for stakeholder input

Alternative formats available on request to PIAC - Contact PIAC

PIAC responded to the Trajectory for Low Energy Homes: Draft document for stakeholder input. In PIAC’s view, any performance metric used should include the energy efficiency benefits of health and comfort and the reduced costs of: running the home; system peak usage; and to the environment.

PIAC also submitted that:

  • Energy efficient appliances and renewable energy systems should be added after the building thermal design minimum standards are met and not be used as a trade off against these
  • The data relied on in the metric must be reviewed regularly to ensure that it is fit for purpose
  • Minimum standards should be ratcheted up over time, to keep up with technological advances and community standards
  • The Trajectory should include existing homes, not just new builds and renovations
  • There should be special provisions to protect renters
