EENCC2025 - Advice on the technical basis to increase the stringency of commercial building energy efficiency regulation
Show close time for other time zones
The work includes the creation of multiple building energy models to assess the cost effectiveness of increasing the stringency of energy efficiency regulations. This requires an understanding of architecture and building envelopes, understanding mechanical engineering as it relates to building HVAC and hot water systems, understanding of electrical engineering in relation to lighting, distributed energy resource equipment and the electricity grid.
The Supplier will need to determine:
• the key modelling scope and assumptions to be used in the building-level analysis when determining costs and benefits of potential stringency changes. This is to be developed by the consultant and confirmed with the ABCB Office early in the project. This includes both economic parameters and technical parameters such as climate files.
• any dependencies that may be required to implement the measures, such as perquisite or concurrent measures, additional hardware or spatial requirements. Ensure that this is accounted for in the analysis.
• how any new or modified DTS provisions will integrate with other parts of the Code, including avoiding potential conflicts and unintended consequences.
The technical analysis will cover investigation in the areas of:
• Building fabric
• Building services
• Simulation-based Verification Methods
• Renewable Energy, EVs and battery storage
• Support for the development of the Regulations, Regulation Impact Assessments and supporting materials
Interested suppliers are invited to respond to this EOI by the closing date on the coversheet
(a) To submit a tender, the Tenderer must satisfy the Conditions for Participation (i.e. mandatory requirements). If the Department determines that the Tenderer does not satisfy all of the Conditions for Participation, the Department will exclude the Tenderer from further consideration (see clause 18).
(b) The Conditions for Participation are set out in the following table:
No. Condition for Participation
1. The Tenderer and any subcontractors proposed in its tender must not be insolvent, bankrupt, in liquidation, or under administration or receivership as at the Closing Time.
2. The Tenderer and any subcontractors proposed in the tender must not be named as non-compliant with the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 (Cth) by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency as at the Closing Time.
