6 Star Energy Standard
All new homes, home renovations, additions, alterations and relocations in Australia need to comply with the 6 Star Standard. This sees Victoria align with national energy efficiency standards.
The 6 Star Standard applies to the thermal performance of a home, renovation or addition, as well as requiring the installation of a solar hot water system or a rainwater tank for toilet flushing.
As a flexible, performance-based standard, 6 Star allows homeowners, builders and designers enormous choice in meeting the requirements.
