NABERS UK launches Version 2.0

NABERS UK launches Version 2.0

BRE has today launched NABERS UK version 2.0. This will extend the NABERS UK scheme to include Whole Building and Tenancy ratings. These two additional ratings have joined the NABERS UK Base Buildings rating and complete the NABERS UK Energy for Offices suite, meaning that both owners and occupiers can rate their spaces.


The updated Rules can all be found in the Useful Downloads section of our website.

NABERS UK Version 2.0


BRE have been working very closely with NABERS and BBP on operationalising Whole Building and Tenancy assessment offerings for NABERS UK. Once launched, office tenants will be able to use NABERS UK to assess the energy used by their tenanted space. Typically, this would include lighting and power, special tenancy requirements or local air conditioning.


Additionally, building owners will be able to undertake assessments on their whole building. This allows the sum of the base building and all the tenancy ratings in the building. This rating can also be used by owners where the metering configuration does not facilitate base building rating.



Buildings can be rated based on their central services like heating and cooling systems, lifts and lobby lighting.




Enables energy used by the tenant to be rated, typically for lighting and power, plus special tenancy requirements or local a/c.




Provides assessment of energy used by office tenancies and by Base Building services to lettable and common spaces.
