SM30: How Australian and European regulators are driving the future of building efficiency standards

Recent developments of the National Construction Code and EU regulations have placed an increased emphasis on fan and ventilation system efficiency.

With 55% of all power in buildings consumed by fans there is an immediate need for higher efficiency air movement systems to drive down the usage of electricity. This session will outline changes of NCC Section nJ5.4 and EU regulations.

Fan efficiency is now front and centre in the NCC.

  • How is this demonstrated? Examples will be given
  • How do consulting engineers have to prepare for compliance?
  • What questions should be asked of suppliers?

The backbone legislation for the NCC is European legislation.  This is changing.

  • What changes are happening in Europe
  • Where may the future be here for us in ANZ?
  • What will be the implications for OEMs exporting to Europe?
