CIBSE appointed new scheme administrator for NABERS UK

NABERS has appointed the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) as its new NABERS UK scheme administrator, taking over the reins from The Building Research Establishment (BRE).

NABERS UK is a leading building energy efficiency and decarbonisation initiative that was launched in the UK in 2020 following an international partnership between major UK industry organisations, led by the Better Buildings Partnership in the UK, and NABERS in Australia. NABERS drives improvements in energy efficiency in commercial buildings through the measurement and verification of actual in-use energy performance, which also provides critical assurance and integrity for building owners and their stakeholders.

As one of the most influential professional bodies in the UK building sector, with a rich history of leadership in energy efficiency and decarbonisation, CIBSE brings a wealth of organisational experience in certification, professional training, standards development and industry engagement, providing a powerful foundation for the role of NABERS UK scheme administrator. CIBSE has supported the Scheme throughout its development and is one of the founding members of the NABERS UK Steering Committee.

CIBSE Chief Executive, Ruth Carter said of the appointment: “We are delighted that CIBSE is now overseeing the administration of NABERS UK. This strategic move aligns with our commitment to advancing energy efficiency in the built environment. NABERS UK plays a crucial role in bridging the performance gap and enhancing transparency. We are excited to contribute to the continued success and impact of NABERS UK.”

NABERS Director, Carlos Flores commented: “CIBSE has an illustrious history of leadership in building sustainability and decarbonisation, and an unmatched track record in certification and the development of technical standards. Buildings in the UK can and should lead the world in tackling the climate crisis, and we are excited about the role NABERS UK can play with an organisation of CIBSE’s calibre at the helm.”

A public launch event will be taking place on 30 April – New NABERS UK scheme administrator webinar. To register click here.
