The Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) provides a standardised approach to rating the thermal performance of Australian dwellings.
The NatHERS Software Accreditation Protocol outlines the requirements and processes for:
- accrediting new energy rating software tools
- updating existing accredited tools
This ensures that software meets standard requirements and produces consistent results in calculating energy loads and star ratings of residential buildings.
