Energy efficiency rating

The Energy Efficiency Rating (EER) is a score applied to dwellings in the Australian Capital Territory. It ranges from zero to six stars – the higher the number of stars, the better. This is mandatory for all dwellings offered for sale in the ACT.

The term can also refer to a rating given to household goods sold in the EU. The rating shown on a label displayed at the point of sale.

It is also a term relating to EU directive 2002/91/EC by which the energy efficiency of all buildings in England and Wales have to be stated when the building is sold as part of the Energy Performance Certificate.[1]
