COAG Energy Ministers have agreed upon the Trajectory for Low Energy Buildings, a national plan that sets a trajectory towards zero energy (and carbon) ready buildings for Australia.
The Trajectory identifies opportunities for the building sector in the context of a broader trajectory for the sector, and in summary proposes:
