NABERS UK is a simple, reliable system for rating the energy efficiency of office buildings across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Like the efficiency star ratings that you get on your fridge or washing machine, NABERS provides a rating from one to six stars for offices.

This helps building owners to understand their building’s performance versus other similar buildings, providing a benchmark for progress.

Unlike design-based energy ratings, NABERS UK measures and rates the actual energy use of offices, helping building owners to accurately track and communicate the energy performance of their buildings. It also helps identify areas for savings and improvements.


NABERS UK offers two products:

  • NABERS Energy for Offices
  • NABERS Design for Performance

To be listed as a NABERS Assessor, you must be qualified and licensed through the NABERS UK Energy Training. To find out more here


NABERS UK is administered by BRE, who is responsible for the day to day operations of the scheme. The strategic operations of NABERS UK are overseen by a steering committee comprising BRE, the Better Buildings Partnership and NABERS, as scheme owner on behalf of Australia’s New South Wales Government.

NABERS UK currently rates the energy performance of offices (base building only). We hope to expand the scope and offering of the scheme in time. Firstly, continuing the work on offices by assessing the opportunity to offer whole building and tenancy energy ratings.
