NABERS Baseline

This page provides information about the NABERS baseline method

About this method

The NABERS baseline method can be used to calculate energy savings for improvements in the NABERS rating of a commercial building.  In this method, the term ‘energy’ may refer to electricity, gas, or both.

To use this method, you must have or will have a certified NABERS rating issued by the NABERS National Administrator for each building from which you may create energy savings certificates.

NABERS ratings can be applied to office buildings, shopping centres, hotels and data centres
