Six star scoping study

The Department of Industry and Science contracted MEFL to undertake a scoping study for an evaluation of the benefits and costs resulting from the introduction of the 6-star energy efficiency standard for housing in the Building Code of Australia from 2010.

This ongoing study required us to review the methodology used by CSIRO for evaluating the costs and benefits resulting from the introduction of the 5-star standard and to propose options for a statistically valid, cost effective methodology for undertaking a study. MEFL delivered the project in partnership with Pitt & Sherry.
