Title: Metering Implications in Australian Commercial Buildings NABERS, Green Star, CBD, BCA and NMI
Cost: Free
Language: English
Length: 1 hour
Presenter: Sam Crisafulli & Jonathan Dalton

Join us for this free webinar for an overview of the impact regulations have on electrical, water and thermal metering. If you're involved in the construction or refurbishment of commercial buildings in Australia then this webinar is for you.

Commercial Buildings in Australia are regulated by numerous laws, rules, codes, guidelines and programs. These regulations are in place to ensure minimum standards in order to protect owners, tenants and occupants as well as ensure an evolution towards improved sustainability and efficiency. National examples of these regulations include:

  • NABERS (National Australian Built Environment Rating System)
  • Green Star
  • CBD (Commercial Building Disclosure)
  • BCA (Building Code of Australia)
  • NMI (National Measurement Institute)
  • and many local council and state regulations

Metering in commercial buildings has grown in extent and complexity and is impacted by these national, state and local regulations. While these regulations are all driving in the same direction, they are typically not well aligned and so require a detailed understanding of the relevant regulations and how they apply. Understanding helps avoid a multitude of issues.

What you'll learn by attending the webinar:

  • What is NABERS, Green Star, CBD, BCA and NMI
  • What terminology is used for metering and what are the definitions
  • What considerations need to be given to metering
  • How are the specifications and constraints on metering solutions for various situations
  • Where is the source material to further research this topic
  • The key elements involved in implementing an effective metering system that meets regulations and accurately reports consumption

This webinar is for:
Building Owner, Consultant, Design Manager, Estimator, Project Manager, Facility Manager, Electrician, Electrical Engineer, Sustainability Manager and Authors of Regulations
