Tuesday, November 16, 2021

You’re invited to take part in the upcoming Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) Consultation, which is launching on Wednesday 10 November. The survey will run for 5 weeks until Thursday 16 December.

We want to hear your feedback about the proposed changes to improve NatHERS. There will be a specific focus on Whole of Home and In Home elements which will be introduced in 2022.

We will share the link for the survey and the detailed discussion paper in our next newsletter on Wednesday 10 November

There will also be three targeted information sessions on 16, 18 and 22 November. If you miss a session you will be able to view the webinars later on the NatHERS website

The public webinars are open to anyone interested in learning more about the proposed changes. The sessions will also help those interested in taking the survey or making a more formal submission.
