In addition to the stages above, all IBERs address the following issues throughout the project:

  • increasing efficiency by changing behaviour in the building, and;
  • ensuring existing building services are properly integrated with new services.

The Energy Efficiency Certification Scheme only covers IBERs that take place in commercial buildings. For more detail on the scope of IBERs, see the Scheme Rules.
