My first guest for the sustainability series is Alec Woolley from Napoleon Energy and he joins me to talk all things energy ratings and what the new rules mean for the building industry.
WELCOME TO SEASON 4 | EPISODE 49
Energy Ratings (what to consider and the new 7 star rules)
With Alec Woolley from Napoleon Energy
WHAT ARE THE NEW 7 STAR RULES?
In this episode, Alec and I discuss the importance of partnering with an energy rater early on in the design phase and how the rules around energy ratings and certification are changing. With an ambitious target for Australia reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050, Alec shares what some of the implications will be on the building industry moving forward.
IN THIS PODCAST WE ARE TALKING ABOUT

Alec outlines what makes the biggest impact from a certification standpoint, including zoning, orientation, windows and insulation and why it’s so important for home owners to advocate for more sustainable building options.
We also dive into the question we’ve all been asking…what does the change from a 6 star rating to a 7 star energy rating mean?
