THE HON JOSH FRYDENBERG MP – Minister for Resources, Energy and Northern Australia
IMPROVING ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND CUTTING ENERGY BILLS
The Turnbull Government is saving Australian households and businesses energy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and lowering energy bills by increasing building and appliance energy efficiency.
The Government will lower the threshold of the Commercial Building Disclosure (CBD) Programme from 2,000 to 1,000 square meters, which will see an additional 1,000 commercial buildings now disclose their energy efficiency when they sell or lease their property. This will help inform purchasers and tenants of building energy costs, delivering more than $50 million in energy savings, and around 3.5 million tonnes of emission reductions over five years. This change will commence 1 July 2017
