#36 Academic validation of performance gap research in energy rating systems

The report Closing the performance gap in Australia’s commercial office sector (produced by Building 4.0 CRC and the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA)) showed modelled energy performance of Green Star certified buildings is being achieved in operation, as demonstrated by NABERS energy ratings. The GBCA aims to further validate and extend this research through an academically peer-reviewed publication.

This project involves undertaking research to understand the outcomes of the Closing the performance gap report in the context of international contemporary academic studies and literature.

Researchers on this project include: Dr Victor Bunster, Dr Thais Gonçalves-Sartori, Dr Duncan Maxwell.
