The Victorian Government is developing a voluntary household efficiency rating tool – the Residential Efficiency Scorecard (the Scorecard).

The Scorecard will empower householders to improve the energy performance of their property and save money on their energy bills.

Once released, householders that are interested in understanding more about the energy performance of their house will be able to contact a private provider and arrange for a rating assessment. The provider will collect data on site and calculate an efficiency rating through the Scorecard tool on the spot. The Scorecard will be a user pays service, assessors will charge householders appropriate fees for providing Scorecard assessments. It is not intended that government will fund assessments.

Once the provider has completed the rating, the householder will receive:

  • An overall rating that represents the average cost of energy for that house
  • Information about the performance of key elements of the house
  • Information about performance of the house in hot conditions and
  • A range of options about how they could improve the rating of the house.

The Residential Efficiency Scorecard is designed for use in existing and new homes.

The Scorecard is supported by the Victorian Government to ensure that the results are backed by robust evidence, data and calculations.

Prior to release, the Victorian Government will consult with stakeholders to gather feedback on aspects of the Scorecard.
